Tottenham boss Mourinho: I left out Rose

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho admits Danny Rose was omitted for their 1-1 draw at FA Cup opponents Southampton.

Rose was not included in the squad at Saints amid reported interest from Newcastle. Mourinho confirmed the left-back was not injured.

Asked whether he would still be at the club next month, he replied: "I don't know. I don't know.

"Not injured. My decision (to leave him out).

"My decision is based on performance and based on my analysis. Nothing else really."
