Tottenham fullback Rose: Pochettino said he'd turn me into England player

Tottenham fullback Danny Rose says the players enjoy playing for Mauricio Pochettino.

Rose has forced his way into the England setup thanks to the influence of the manager.

"It's no secret when the manager came in that I was uncertain about my position here and rightly so, because the season before I didn't do as well as I could have done," he told the Spurs website.

“The manager came in and spoke with me, I was one of the first people he spoke to.

“We talked about a lot of things for about an hour and one of the first things he said was if I entered into his philosophy, he would make me into an England player, so he's been true to his word.

“A lot of hard work has gone in, a lot of patience from the manager as well. Not everything has been great, he's had to put up with a lot of mistakes I've made but he's always stuck by me."
