Danny Rose will likely find himself in trouble at Tottenham Hotspur after giving an interview in which he criticised the club.
The defender has bemoaned their lack of summer signings, saying that the club must bolster their squad to compete with the top teams.
An interview with MUTV in which he famously criticised his teammates led Alex Ferguson to showing Roy Keane the exit door at Manchester Untied.
There were shades of that when Rose sat down with the Sun this week. He claimed his teammates were wrong to say Spurs did not need new signings.
He also urged the chairman Daniel Levy to reconsider his transfer policy and opt for established players instead of unknowns:
“As a Tottenham player I’d love to see more signings. It would lift me seeing a top player come through the door.
“I’ve seen a couple of players previously saying, ‘We don’t need a top signing or signings’. But I am sorry, I am not singing off the same hymn-sheet on that one.
“I am not saying buy ten players, I’d love to see two or three and not players you have to Google and say, ‘Who’s that?’ I mean well-known players.”
“Under Harry Redknapp we signed Rafa van der Vaart. It was like, ‘Wow, how did he do that?’" he said.
“I mean signings like that are what we need — that’s just my opinion.
“As a starting XI we have one of the best in the league, without a shadow of a doubt, but after that...
"We played Chelsea in the Cup semi final: Costa, Hazard and Cahill didn’t play. After 60 minutes, Conte has brought on Fabregas, Hazard and Costa and they’ve changed the match.
"I thought to myself, ‘Could we ever afford to play against a top team and afford to have Harry Kane, Dele Alli and a top centre-back not playing?’
“No disrespect to anyone but I don’t think we could do that and Chelsea did that to us. They’re still in the game, they bring on Costa, Hazard and Fabregas and they won. I definitely feel we need to bolster the squad.
