Paul Robinson called for Tottenham defender Danny Rose to have his future sorted out sooner rather than later.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-Spurs keeper claimed Rose hadn’t handled his uncertain future well when it comes to speaking to the media.
The Spurs left-back publicly shared that he didn’t need to have a conversation with Jose Mourinho about his future as he’s definitely staying until the end of his contract.
Robinson pointed out Rose had previously made no qualms about wanting to leave Spurs and suggested the player’s situation has to be sorted out sooner rather than later given his remarks.
When asked about Rose’s latest remarks, Robinson told Football Insider: “There’s always been speculation about Danny Rose’s future and I don’t think he has handled the way he talks about his future very well over the past how many months.
“And that’s just another example of that.
“He’s made no qualms about the fact he wants to leave at some point, but I think the sooner it’s decided the better.
“I think Jose has shown with Christian Eriksen that he is not willing to suffer players who want to leave as he is willing to leave them on the bench or out of the squad.
“So if Danny Rose really does want to leave, it’s a situation that needs to be sorted out sooner rather than later.”
Rose’s contract is scheduled to end in 18 months at the end of the 2020/21 season, with his latest contract extension coming back in 2016.
The 29-year-old has featured frequently for Spurs this season despite his contract running down as he has played 14 times across all competitions.
