Danny Rose should be thoroughly proud of himself right now after another superb performance for Spurs at the weekend.
The left-back set up the Lilywhites’ first goal in the 2-0 win over Manchester City, his cross being buried by Aleksandar Kolarov.
Rose has come on leaps and bounds under Mauricio Pochettino and is now a key part of Tottenham’s high-pressing game.
Like we said, he has a lot to be proud of. One thing he’s clearly not proud of, however, is the state of the England team.
The defender has gone above and beyond for the Three Lions in the past. Only a few weeks ago, he played through the pain in the 1-0 win over Slovakia to set up Adam Lallana’s winner, even though the subsequent hamstring injury ruled him out for several domestic games.
All the same, it sounds like Rose is feeling pretty disillusioned by the England team after the Sam Allardyce scandal.
“I saw Alan Shearer say English football has become a laughing stock and it’s hard to say but I agree a bit,” he told the Sun.
“With a manager losing his job after one game, it’s not good in any sense and whatever stance the FA take after the four games, I hope the next England manager will be one for the long term and help us to improve in tournaments.
“With Sam, it came from nowhere. I was just thinking, ‘Who will it be now?’,” he added.
“I don’t want to say it’s a mess, but it’s not nice for English football.”
