Danny Rose makes Arsenal claim that will infuriate Tottenham fans
By Amir Mir
Danny Rose has hailed the football Arsenal play as “breathtaking” as he backed north London rivals manager Arsene Wenger for the England post.
Left-back Rose heaped praised on Wenger and the work he has done in the last 20 years for Spurs’ bitter rivals.
Sam Allardyce was sacked as England manager after just one game in charge, with Wenger tipped as a contender to take the national post, with his contract at Emirates Stadium expiring at the end of this campaign.
England international Rose stated that Wenger becoming the manager of the three lions would do “wonders” for the country, with Gareth Southgate currently in charge.
“I’d welcome whoever is being linked with the job,” Rose told the Evening Standard. “What he’s done for Arsenal over the last 20 years has been brilliant, the football that Arsenal play is breathtaking to watch at times.

“If he was to ever become manager of England that could certainly do wonders for the country.
“It would be great to have a manager like him with all the experience he has got. I’d be all for that.”
Roses’ comments will no doubt infuriate the White Hart Lane support, with the north London neighbours set to clash on November 6 at the Emirates.
Any praise of Arsenal is usually viewed dimly by supporters of their bitter rivals.
The Gunners are a point behind Mauricio Pochettino’s side who have registered 17 points from seven games and are the only unbeaten side in the league this season.
