'False hope' - Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Rose injury update
By Amir Mir
Tottenham defender Danny Rose has continued to participate in “some aspects of training” – and fans on Twitter have not reacted well to the injury update.
The club confirmed on their official Twitter account on Friday afternoon that the 26-year-old continues to get involved in some aspects of training.
Rose has been on the sidelines with a knee injury since the goalless draw against Sunderland in January.
There was the hope that he would make a comeback before the north London derby this Sunday or even feature in the crucial clash against Arsenal at White Hart Lane.
However, fans on Twitter are not pleased with the news as they feel they are being given ‘false hope’ in regards to Rose’s injury update.

Rose has been a regular feature under manager Mauricio Pochettino in recent seasons as he has been one of the most-improved players under the Argentine.
There is perhaps the argument that Rose is Tottenham’s best all-round player because of what he provides both in attack and defence.
Pochettino likes to play three defenders at the back added with two wing-backs in Rose and Kyle Walker.
The duo are key players in that system as they provide that extra solidity in defence and that extra pace, fear and creativity in the final attacking third.
Since Rose has been injured Ben Davies has filled that role, with Son Heung-Min also playing at wing-back during his side’s FA Cup defeat against Chelsea.
