    Mauricio Pochettino reveals first meeting in 2014 to keep this Tottenham star
    MAURICIO POCHETTINO has revealed his first duty as Tottenham boss was to try and convince Danny Rose to stay.
    By DAVID WRIGHT

    The 25-year-old has enjoyed an impressive campaign but his future at Spurs was far from certain when Pochettino first arrived after he made fellow left-back Ben Davies one of his first signings in the summer of 2014.

    Rose completed Spurs' comeback in the 2-1 win over Swansea yesterday to reduce the gap between second-place Tottenham and Premier League leaders Leicester back to two points.

    And Pochettino believes he made the right decision to stick by the former England Under-21 international and has praised his influence on and off the field.

    "We arrived 21 months ago and the first meeting I had with a Tottenham player was with him," Pochettino said.

    "They were on holiday and I called him to come to my office. I was happy and pleased to give him the opportunity to stay here and work with us.

    "It is true we are very happy with him showing quality and helping the team.

    "It was maybe difficult from the beginning when we arrived but I am very happy for him. The crowd were singing his name.

    "When any manager arrives at a new club always the player needs to know the idea. Mine was from the beginning to give him the chance to show he has enough quality to play for Tottenham."

    Rose arrived at Tottenham in the summer of 2007 as a product of Leeds' famed academy, costing the north London club a reported £1million.

    The left-back said: “I’d like to believe we can but I don’t want to think that… Before the Man City game I was having dinner with Lamela and I was still asking him if he reckoned we can finish in the top four.

    “I’ve never seen someone look at me with such disgust. He said ‘My friend, we can win the league’.

    and this part is also important

    “It’s great competition,” said Rose. “As I’ve said, I’m thankful Ben is here because he’s helped me improve and I hope I’ve helped him improve.

    “Whenever he plays, I see it as a chance to learn from him. I watch him and he makes the underlapping runs so well, the timing of his runs, and it’s something I need to improve in my game.

    “I’m sure Kyle will be thankful Kieran is here because Kieran is having a great first season - he’s managed to chip in with a couple of assists. I’m over the moon for everyone.”

    The most upsetting thing about Danny Rose's season is that no matter how well he plays for Spurs, Roy probably won't even consider him for the Euros.

    Rose was very good against Swansea.

    Gee, he can hit a good ball.

    He's been the most consistent English left-back over the last two seasons and should be first choice. If he's not in the squad it's a farce. (Personally, I'd take him and Bertrand).

    I have to say i totally eat my words regarding Rose. I just didnt see the fuss a few seasons back and for me i thought best let him go but how wrong I was!! He has been bloody brilliant at times. Very consistent and such a team player, throws his body on the line as well when needed. And he should def be going to the euros

    Thought Rose was shit pre Pochettino.

    He's been unrecognisable the last season and a half. And he seems to be getting more and more committed. He puts everything he has on the line and risks injury for the team every game.
    If everyone acted that way we'd be title favourites.
    To be fair, a lot of them do. Just not all of them.

    I'm not going to get into a debate so I'll keep quiet and just let the praise for Rose continue.

    Poch is quoted as saying "Today I am very happy and very pleased for him because he scored and the ground sang his name. But he needs to keep his feet on the ground".

    I found the bolded bit a little strange and maybe is an insight into the previous attitute problems Rose was rummoured to have, ie believing he was better than Spurs. Anyway, I alway thought he had the right attributes to be a quality player for us, but often had consistancy problems, hopfully he has sorted those out.

    I used to think Rose was a bit of a grumpy, arrogant player, just jogging back and had an attitude. I am starting to think after listening him in interviews that he is actually quite a shy lad. Misunderstood probably, def by me.

    I think you're reading too much into it. Pochettino always says something like this after praising a player or the team as a matter of course, regardless of who it is.

    I fully expect Martin Kelly to get in after scoring the other week or Jon Flanagan now he's back from injury and has the experience of being standby in 2014.

    Nah I think he just wanted first team football. He was prepared to join Sunderland after his loan spell because he was so desperate to play, not because he thought he was better than Spurs. At the time though, he probably didn't deserve an outright place in the first 11 but he's worked at his game and he has improved so much it's unreal. My favourite thing about him is that he never ever bottles a 50/50. If he could improve in the final 3rd, he'd be an almost perfect fullback/wingback.
