Mauricio Pochettino has suggested that Danny Rose has a chance of playing for Tottenham in their Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.
Rose, 27, was inexplicably axed from the Spurs squad that lost to Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday, with Pochettino claiming that he was kept out of the equation due to him struggling for fitness.
However the Sun has since reported that Rose is fuming with Pochettino for his decision to cast him away from the first-team squad to undergo separate training sessions.
It is understood that the England international believes he is fully fit to take part in the senior squad’s matches and is in a disagreement with his manager.
In his pre-match press conference ahead of the Dortmund showdown at the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday, Pochettino gave an update on Rose’s situation.
“He’s doing well. The training session on Saturday was tough for him. He will now train with the group and we’ll decide if he will play tomorrow,” he said, as quoted by Football.London.
Rose had been out of action since January with a serious knee injury before he returned in October.
The left-back played the entire 90 minutes of the win against Crystal Palace before the international break, where he continued his comeback by featuring for England.
There have been questions asked about Rose’s future with the North London club ever since he spoke out against chairman Daniel Levy for his spending policy in the summer.
