Tottenham full-back Danny Rose says talk of bad blood between himself and manager Mauricio Pochettino is “getting silly”.
Rose admits he was disappointed to be substituted during Wednesday’s Champions League game against Apoel Nicosia but says there ‘”never will be an issue” between himself and Pochettino.
“This is getting silly now,” said Rose. “The manager said it was best I came off and I didn’t want to come off. That was it. I’ve seen already that people are saying we exchanged words. There is no issue between me and the manager, there has never been an issue.
“For the last three-and-a-half years, four years, the manager has been my biggest fan. He’s given me nothing but love and respect. There is no issue, there never will be an issue. People need to stop this, because it’s not welcomed.”
