Tottenham Hotspur outcast Danny Rose could soon be on his way to West Bromwich Albion, talkSPORT’s Alex Crook believes.
Rose has been treated like a pariah ever since Jose Mourinho arrived at the club back in 2019, spending the latter half of last season on loan at Newcastle United, whilst this season he wasn’t even given a squad number for the Premier League campaign and hasn’t made a senior appearance in any competition this season.
And speaking on talkSPORT’s Gameday Football Podcast, Crook revealed that Rose could have reached a breaking point in his attempts to leave the club before the end of his contract in the summer, before suggesting where might be a good place for him to go:
He said: “I’m told that Danny Rose is seriously contemplating now cancelling his contract at Spurs. Clearly not part of Jose Mourinho’s plans, hasn’t even been training with the first team is my understanding. I think he realises now if he wants to continue to be a footballer, then he needs to get out. And I think Sam Allardyce is looking for Premier League experience – and I think it’d be a good signing for West Bromwich Albion and maybe a good move for Danny Rose as well.”
Do you think that Danny Rose has been unfairly treated by Jose Mourinho?
TIF Thoughts on what Crook had to say about Danny Rose’s future…
Crook’s comments don’t exactly paint the best of pictures for Rose, and it just goes to show how tough times can sometimes be for a footballer.
And a club like West Brom might be a great place for him to try and restart his career. As Crook said, given the situation the Baggies are in right now at the bottom of the table, they are going to need all the help that they can get, and with just shy of 200 Premier League appearances under his belt, he can certainly provide that experience.
If he can put in a decent showing there, even if it isn’t enough to keep them in the Premier League, then getting regular minutes would be a great chance to showcase that he still has something left in the tank.
