'Bit of a bust-up' - Spurs Exclusive: Ex-defender says wide man giving Mourinho 'Headache'
Alex Bruce has suggested Danny Rose could still return to Tottenham and be a regular again under Jose Mourinho.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Russell Edge, the just-retired footballing son of Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce claims the England international may head back to Spurs again in the summer to give the manager “a headache”.
Newcastle signed Rose on deadline day in January from Tottenham on loan for the rest of the season.
Ex-Premier League defender Bruce, 35, revealed he had heard talk of a fall-out involving the Portugese manager and the outspoken left-back.
Asked by Football Insider if Rose had played his last game for Tottenham, Bruce replied: “Football, you can never say never. If he goes to Newcastle and he does
really well then you never know.
“All depends on what his relationship with Mourinho was like. There was rumours there was a bit of a bust-up but again, he’s got a point to prove, you’ve always got a point to prove in football, no matter who you are and the career you’ve had.

“If he goes and does well at Newcastle he might want to stay up north because he’s a northern lad but if he does go back to Spurs for whatever reason then he’d be hoping he can do well and give Mourinho a headache.”
Rose joined Newcastle after losing his starting place at Tottenham.
He is out of contract at the Londoners in the summer of 2021 and has been told by chairman Daniel Levy he will not get an extension.
At Newcastle, he has started the team’s last four matches among his five appearances for his new club.
