Cape Town - Danny Rose admits the last thing he expected was to get a warm reception from Tottenham Hotspur supporters on his return from injury at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Comments made by the 27-year-old left-back during the off-season rubbed fans the wrong way when he expressed a desire to leave Spurs and claimed they weren't paying him enough money.

Rose had not featured for Mauricio Pochettino's side since sustaining a knee injury in January, but made his comeback as a second-half substitute against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.

The England international was cheered by the travelling support during the 1-1 draw in Madrid, for which he is grateful as he looks to move on from the episode.

"I was expecting a frosty reception from the fans tonight so I just have to say thank you to them for giving me a great reception when I came on and when I was training afterwards," the Leeds youth product said.

"I want to thank them again for chanting my name. I'm trying to look forward now for the rest of the season. First and foremost I have to try to win my shirt back.

"It's gone now, my manager has forgotten about it and we all move forward and we try to win this club a trophy. It's forgotten about. My opinions will be voiced in a different way from now on."
