'Respect' – Tottenham ace responds after incident during Apoel CL clash
Tottenham ace Danny Rose has insisted there is no issue between himself and Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The 27-year-old was substituted in Wednesday’s 3-0 Champions League win over Apoel Nicosia at Wembley and reacted by walking straight down the tunnel.
Much has been made of Rose’s relationship with his manager in recent weeks. The full-back said he was “fuming” after being left out of the Spurs squad to face Arsenal in the north London derby last month.
Rose also had to apologise to his manager after he spoke out about the club’s transfer policy in the summer. The player has also been linked with a move away in January, with Manchester United reportedly keen on signing him.
However, Rose is adamant that there is no bad blood between him and his manager.
“This is getting silly now,” Rose told Sky Sports.

“For the last three-and-a-half years, four years, the manager has been my biggest fan. He’s given me nothing but love and respect.
“There is no issue, there never will be an issue. People need to stop this, because it’s not welcomed.”
Rose has made six appearances for Spurs in all competitions this season and has faced competition for the left wing-back spot with Wales star Ben Davies.
The England international missed over 10 months of action when he picked up a serious injury in a Premier League game with Sunderland back in January.
Rose will be hoping to return to the Tottenham starting line-up for the Premier League clash with Stoke on Saturday.
