Tottenham fans react to Danny Rose apology - 'Accepted', 'finished at Spurs'

Much of the team that started on Sunday were stalwarts from Tottenham's most successful Premier League campaign ever last season.

"There is a real project happening and the board showed that last season by re-signing all of the most important players in the squad".

He continued: "Right now, Harry Kane is one year away from being worth that, if already not being worth that".

The full back was left out of the squad for Spurs' 2-0 win against Newcastle, but both the club and the player will be hoping that the situation is resolved quickly.

However, Roberts was not impressed with Rose's statements, and slammed the United boss by accusing him of taking creative routes to influence him on his preferences. "We need them to challenge for all the things".

Manchester Unted should not target Tottenham Hotspurs Danny Rose despite rumours linking the left-back to the club when they have other priorities to cover.

With their new stadium also being built and with White Hart Lane now just a building site, Spurs will be playing at Wembley.

Last season's Premier League runners-up have yet to bring in any reinforcements despite selling Kyle Walker, Nabil Bentaleb, Clinton N'Jie and Federico Fazio for a combined sum reportedly close to £72 million. "He showed in the United States of America that he was ready to play", Pochettino said.

The Daily Telegraph's chief sports writer Paul Hayward agreed, admitting that Spurs do not compete with the top clubs in the Premier League when it comes to wages.

The north London club do not have an easy task on their hands. Now we start the season at Newcastle.

"You need to understand that Rose gave his opinion", Pochettino said.

In an interview with The Sun during midweek, Rose admitted time is running out for him to win trophies and said he wants to "play up north" in the future.

The long-serving defender said the club could still do with a few big name signings before the end of the transfer window.
