Earlier today we relayed a report that suggested Danny Rose’s omission from Tottenham’s official 2018 calendar could mean he doesn’t have a future at the club.
The defender gave a contentious interview in August in which he appeared to criticise the club’s transfer and wage policies.
Ever since, there has been plenty of speculation about Rose’s future at Spurs, with Manchester United apparently waiting in the wings to sign him.
But in his press conference ahead of Tottenham’s clash with Bournemouth this weekend, Mauricio Pochettino laughed off a question about the calendar story.
The Argentine said: “He came to see me and said ‘Gaffer, why aren’t I on the calendar?’ I said you were in Central Park. It’s not a big issue.” (Quotes via The Independent.)
Of course, there is still reason to believe Rose will leave next summer. But it has nothing to do with a calendar.
We were on ? when we last faced @afcbournemouth!
