Lord Sugar revealed his delight after left-back Danny Rose was named in Tottenham’s starting line up to face Manchester City.

The 26-year-old has failed to feature for Tottenham since August after picking up a hamstring injury while on international duty with England.

Sugar, who was Tottenham’s chairman for 16 years, posted on his personal Twitter account that he was “glad” to see the return of the former Leeds left-back.

Rose made an immediate impact in the game as well, curling in a fantastic cross that Aleksandar Kolarov couldn’t deal with and put in his own net for the opening goal. At half-time Spurs were 2-0 up against the league leaders.

Prior to Sunday’s game, Rose had missed six games against the likes of Monaco, Stoke and Middlesbrough with the muscle injury.

Rose was replaced by Welsh left-back Ben Davies during the matches, but returned to Mauricio Pochettino’s side after regaining full fitness.

The  Doncaster-born defender broke onto the Premier League scene in 2010 when he scored a spectacular long-range effort against bitter rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

The England international has made eight appearances for his home country, including three starts in the nation’s disappointing 2016 European Championship campaign.

Rose has been a regular starter for manager Pochettino since the Argentine’s arrival in 2014, and had made three appearances so far this season scoring one goal before starting over Davies against Guardiola’s City.
