After spending the majority of the last five seasons out on loan, Rose wants to make the position his own now at Spurs and he feels has to prove to the manager that he does not need to recruit another body in January.
"That is my job (to persuade Villas-Boas signing another left-back is not necessary)," Rose said.
"And I would be the first one to find out if the club were looking to do that.
"I thought the club were going to do that in August, I went to see the manager, I sat down with him and he told me it was not true and if the club was going to do that he would come and speak to me first hand."
"I have a lot of respect for the manager and he has got a lot of respect for me," the 23 year old added.
"He treats me as one of the big players here and it's the first time I have had that at this club."
