Rose worried that key Tottenham stars could move on

Tottenham defender Danny Rose feels the club could struggle to keep their best players, but has no such fears over Harry Kane.

Rose, 26, is just one of several Spurs players who have been linked with moves away from the club this summer.

It is well documented that Tottenham are unable to compete with other big clubs in terms of paying huge salaries and Rose believes that could be an issue going forward.

He told BBC Radio 5 live: “There is only so much the club can do. A lot of it has got to be down to the individual”.

However, the former Leeds defender feels that Kane will be at Tottenham for many years to come.

“Someone like Harry Kane, I can tell you that his mindset will be ‘I’m staying at Tottenham, I’m going to break every single record, I’m going to captain this club into the new stadium’ so when you’ve got a player like him with that mindset I don’t think Tottenham have to worry.

“But it depends where the individual is in the stage of his career. He might feel he has done enough at Tottenham and might fancy a change or might feel Tottenham is the nearly club that nearly wins the league and might choose to move on.”

Rose, who had arguably been the club’s player of the season until injury ruled him out for the second half of the campaign, was also complimentary of Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino but no so much when it came to one of his old bosses in Harry Redknapp.

“I wish (Pochettino) was my manager from when I was 18,” Rose added.

“Working under Harry was difficult and I sort of gave up thinking I could play for Tottenham week-in, week-out.

“The kids don’t realise how lucky they are to have a manager like the one we’ve got now.”
