Danny Rose should be given more credit for his achievements over the course of a superb season, according to Thierry Henry.
The Arsenal legend singled out the left-back following his terrific assist for Erik Lamela’s goal in the 3-0 rout of Manchester United on Sunday.
Rose picked Lamela out in the box with a low, precise pass from the wing and the Argentine beautifully dispatched the opportunity.
In his #BeThatGuy column for the Sun, which hails unheralded players for their unselfish devotion to the team, Henry praised Rose for his ability and intelligence in the build-up to Lamela’s match-clinching strike.
“First there was an amazing diagonal pass from Kyle Walker. Then a little flick from Christian Eriksen to Danny Rose,” Henry told the Sun on Monday.
“While the ball was bouncing, knowing he had time on the ball, he looked in the box and saw who was in the box, who can he pick?
“A lot of players love to cross the ball for the sake of crossing the ball. He didn’t. He looked and thought, ‘Who can I pick?’
“Erik Lamela is coming, ball on the ground, great technique, great goal. It was amazing awareness from Danny Rose.”
Rose has been a mainstay in a Tottenham line-up that has the best defence in the Premier League and are still attempting to hunt down high flying Leicester and snatch the title from their grasp.
Spurs easily put United to the sword on Sunday with an electric six minutes that yielded three goals.
Tottenham travel to the Britannia Stadium on Monday of next week to face Stoke knowing that anything but a win would surely end their title hopes.
The Foxes are currently seven points clear at the top of the table and need just three more wins in their final five games to clinch their first ever top flight trophy.
In other Tottenham news, Dele Alli set himself a target at the start of the season and is close to achieving it.
