Rose: No rift with Poch, he's my biggest fan

Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur full-back Danny Rose has reiterated that there is no friction between him and manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Rose was substituted in the 70th minute of Spurs' 3-0 win over APOEL in the Champions League, and the pair appeared to have a disagreement on the sideline.

However, Rose insists there is no problem between himself and Pochettino, and claims the Argentine is still his biggest supporter.

“This is getting silly now,” said Rose, according to the Independent.

“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. And people trying to put stuff in the media is not welcomed.

“For the last three-and-a-half years to 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.” 

Rose's future at Spurs has been in doubt ever since a controversial newspaper interview back in August when the Englishman criticised the club's transfer policy and wage structure.

Spurs welcome Stoke City to Wembley Stadium on Saturday, December 8 for a Premier League clash.

Kick off is at 17:00 (SA time).
