'How on earth is it possible' - Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Rose injury update
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham fans have aired their worries on Twitter after the club announced that Danny Rose would only start outdoor work next week.
The 26-year-old left-back has starred for Spurs this season, offering quality in both the defence and attack for the team alongside teammate Kyle Walker.
However, he last featured at the end of January in a 0-0 draw with Sunderland which saw him limp off the field after just 38 minutes and the official Tottenham Twitter account revealed on Thursday afternoon that he was progressing well, but would only start outdoor work next week.

That's a blow him not making the semi final. Both fullbacks were the reason we drove Chelsea back at home.
