After his controversial comments on his club’s transfer dealings this summer, Danny Rose is now reportedly pushing for a 40 million move to Stamford Bridge.
The English defender came in the news when he blasted Tottenham’s lack of investment in their squad ahead of the new season.
This is what Rose had to say,
“I am opinionated and I might not have long left in football.”
“One thing is for sure, for the rest of this career, I will play this game how I want to play it and, while I am not going to disrespect anyone, I am going to voice my opinions.”
“At my age, and having missed six months with injury, I have been thinking about this quite a lot.”
“I am reaching my peak and have probably only got one big contract left in me.”
“Time is running out and I do want to win trophies. I don’t want to play football for 15 years and not have one trophy or one medal.”
“Sorry, that’s not what I am about. I wouldn’t be happy with that. I want to win something.”
“I will say this too — I will play up north. I don’t know exactly when, but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere.”
“I moved away from home (from Leeds to Spurs) at 16.”
“In any walk of life, if you think you are worth a certain amount, why settle for less? I am not that person.”
“If I get to levels I reached last season — and this goes out to everybody — I will make sure I get what I am worth. I don’t know how much longer I might have at this level. I’m not going to be stupid enough not to try and get the most out of it — medals, trophies and salary.”
“Anyone who thinks this is primarily for money, that is not the case. But I know what I am worth.”
“As with everyone else in my team, in my opinion, I am worth more than I am getting.”
But in spite of the vitriol of criticism that came his way, Rose was applauded by his Spurs team mates at the training ground the next day. Many members of that squad share his feelings, and they want to personally voice their concerns to chairman, Daniel Levy.
