Tottenham fullback Rose: Premier League must help their clubs in Europe

Tottenham fullback Danny Rose says the Premier League should be doing more to help their clubs in Europe.

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham are preparing for their Champions League semi-final first leg with Ajax, who will have enjoyed a seven-day rest ahead of this Tuesday's clash in north London.

Dutch football authorities have extended their domestic season by moving a round of fixtures due to be played at the weekend to the end of the 2018-19 campaign instead.

"I could not believe it when I heard that is what the Dutch are doing," Rose said. "When you get to this stage of the season, a little bit of fatigue kicks in and every little helps. It would be nice if the people in England took a similar stance and helped us out.

"Ultimately, it is not Tottenham against Ajax or Liverpool against Barcelona - it is England. We want to bring the Champions League to Tottenham, but also to England."
