Spurs legend Hoddle: Teammates will be happy with outspoken Rose

Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle believes Danny Rose will be a popular member of the dressing room after his explosive interview last week.

Writing for the Mail on Sunday, Hoddle declared: "So what has happened in the last two seasons, in finishing third and then second and challenging for the title for the first time since the Eighties, has been truly tantalising. For some Spurs fans, this is something they have never seen before. The excitement has been palpable.

"And that's why people are beginning to express their frustration at what hasn't happened this summer. And it's also why Danny Rose will not have walked into an angry dressing room on Thursday morning, following his now infamous comments about signings and salaries at Tottenham.

"In fact, deep down his team-mates will be thinking, 'Well done, Danny. You've put your head above the parapet but you're only saying what we're all thinking.'

"We can all agree that the timing was wrong, coming at the start of the season and after six months of injury. Few would argue with the sentiment."
