Tottenham fullback Rose: Tough being around Liverpool players

Tottenham Hotspur fullback Danny Rose says it's been tough playing for England alongside Liverpool's players.

Spurs lost to Jurgen Klopp's side in the Champions League final last week.

"It's not draining coming to play for your country," he said.

"It is a bit draining having lost last weekend and having to share the camp with Liverpool players. You are reminded every day that you lost the final and that was a unique experience for me.

"I have never been through that myself. I was definitely tired from a long season with my club and having to come to England didn't help.

"But as I said, whenever you're selected for England it is a great occasion. It is one I will always welcome and cherish."
