Rose asks Mason for Spurs return after Mourinho sacking

Danny Rose was all smiles yesterday at Spurs Lodge on the day of Jose Mourinho's sacking.

The defender, who had been outcast since Mourinho's arrival at Spurs, turned up to the club's training ground visibly in high spirits and even had a laugh with the Sky Sports cameras.

The presenter at the ground reporting on Mourinho's exit said: "Danny Rose popped out of the back of a van and asked all of us 'what are you lot doing here?' before laughing and getting back in the van."

Rose has not made a single appearance for the Tottenham first-team after Mourinho expelled him to the club's Under-23 set-up.

In the midst of Mourinho's surprise departure, the Telegraph have reported that he asked Ryan Mason, who is taking interim charge at Spurs, if he could rejoin the first-team for training sessions.

Rose is still eligible to play for the club despite not featuring for the senior squad in a long time, and would be able to be picked for their Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday.

The defender is out of contract in the summer and looks destined for the exit door.
