England international Danny Rose has said that he has nothing to prove to anyone after re-establishing himself as a regular for club and country. The left-sided defender was left out of the pre-season tour of Asia this summer and reports thereafter emerged that he could head through the exit door at the earliest opportunity.
Meanwhile, the experienced defender came up with a similar statement for Gareth Southgate, who has chosen him ahead of Ben Chilwell, he added: “Then if you look at international I’ve got a manager that whenever I’ve been available for selection I’ve been chosen. He fully believes in me and I’m very grateful. I don’t feel I’ve got anything to prove to anybody and I feel as if I’ve done enough over the years to prove my worth.”
Rose has been prone to the odd defensive mistake and one of those came during the shock 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United where he should have provided cover to Davinson Sanchez prior to the Magpies goal. Nonetheless, he has been able to command a regular starting role ahead of Ben Davies and it remains to be seen whether that would tempt him to pen a contract extension. Rose has less than two years remaining on his current deal with the club.
