Charlie Nicholas has claimed that Danny Rose is unhappy at Tottenham as he questioned whether things have 'calmed down' at the club following their defeat to Olympiacos on Wednesday night.  

The former striker suggested that there are 'so many questions' at the club, with Spurs letting a two-goal lead slip in Greece during their Champions League opener. 

Before the European transfer window slammed shut earlier this month, the future of a number of Spurs players were being questioned, with Christian Eriksen's name shining brightest, as reported by The Evening Standard. 


At the weekend, Spurs will take on Leicester in the Premier League, with Sky Sports pundit Nicholas seemingly suggesting that nothing has changed at the club. 

"Tottenham, we were told, have calmed down after the Crystal Palace game," Nicholas told Sky Sports. "Christian Eriksen stays put and they have their private chat, but I don't think that is the case.

"I don't think Danny Rose is happy - how long will it be until he comes out and says he is not happy? Will Eriksen stay in the team now that Dele Alli is back? Does Heung-Min Son edge out Lucas Moura? There are so many questions."

England defender Danny Rose makes his point during the UEFA Euro 2020 Group  A Qualifying match between England and Bulgaria at Wembley Stadium, London on Saturday 7th September 2019.

Left-back Rose, who earns £60k-a-week at the North London club [Spotract], has been a regular under Mauricio Pochettino this season.

Last term, Wales international Ben Davies had made that fullback spot his own, but it seems as though he has now been ousted by the Englishman, even though Pochettino rotated the two for their midweek European encounter. 

The game against Brendan Rodgers side, which will take place at the King Power Stadium on Saturday lunchtime, might see the return of Rose, and Heung-Ming Son, who was a late substitute on Wednesday.
