If Danny Rose takes to the pitch against Rubin Kazan tonight, it will be a welcome sight for Spurs fans to see one of our brightest stars return from a troublesome long term injury.
Rose was converted to an emergency left back last season and impressed in the role to give some much needed competition and back up for BAE’s slot and this position is now a long term target for the player.
“My ultimate aim is to be in the starting XI on a Saturday,” Rose said.
“I got in the team for the last four games of last season and did well. I started all right in pre-season and was unlucky to get the injury.
“That has set me back a bit, but I want to be in the starting line-up on a Saturday.”
With BAE nailing down the left back slot at present, Danny could be eyeing up a loan spell but he asserted that he is ready for Premiership action.
“If I was going to go out on loan I would want it to be in the Premier League,” he added.
“I wouldn’t want to go back to the Championship again. I hope I do well in the games I’m involved in to make a Premier League loan move in January if I’m not playing here.”
With BAE hard to shift, a loan move could be Rose’s best option for now but is he equipped to one day make the Tottenham left-back slot his own?
