Toby Alderweireld is in danger of becoming the next Danny Rose at Tottenham, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England and Aston Villa striker delivered his verdict after the Belgian was left out of yet another Spurs matchday squad.
Mourinho explained after the game Alderweirled was not included in his 20-man squad because he had only returned to training on Saturday after international duty meaning he had not undergone required covid testing.
The Daily Mail report the defender actually had a test on Wednesday and was pictured in training the following day.
The 32-year-old fans favourite had started over half of Spurs’ Premier League games this season before being dropped against Aston Villa prior to the international break.
“He’s another one that he’s probably fallen out with,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“There are too many players now. Last season it was Danny Rose. There are too many players.
“Jose Mourinho with this ego he’s got, he’s going to keep falling out with players. Gareth Bale didn’t start…
“For me, he’s playing a very dangerous game and it’s going to be the inevitable where he gets the sack again.
“He’s not adapting to modern-day management where you’ve got to be careful with what you say to players.”
Football Insider revealed last month Rose has rejected multiple offers from Spurs to have his contract terminated with a pay-off.
The left-back last played for the club in January 2020 and was not included in their Premier League or Europa League squad this season.
