Danny Rose has claimed that it would be “amazing” to have Mauricio Pochettino as his manager for both Tottenham and England.
The left-back heaped praise on his Argentine boss, claiming he is one of the main reasons he recently put pen to paper on a new five-year Spurs deal.
In quotes published by the London Evening Standard, Rose claimed that appointing Pochettino to the role as England hotseat would benefit the national team as he explained what makes the 44-year-old so special.
“It would be amazing to have him as England manager one day,” Rose said, as quoted by the London Evening Standard.
“What he’s done for Tottenham is clear for everyone to see, with the squad he’s built. That would only be good for English football if that was ever to be the case.”
Rose is set to feature for England during the international break after returning from a hamstring injury that had kept him out for a month.
The 26-year-old star was integral to Spurs’ emphatic 2-0 win against Manchester City on the weekend, and is likely to start in Gareth Southgate’s first game in charge against Malta on Saturday.
England then travel to Slovenia on Tuesday, as they look to continue their 100 per cent record in Group F of Europe’s World Cup qualifying groups.
Rose has made an impressive 127 league and cup appearances for the North London side since his debut in 2010, scoring nine goals and providing 18 assists.
