Like it or not, since his arrival to Tottenham Hotspur from Leeds United in 2007, Danny Rose has been a true ambassador for the 'Lilywhites'.

It was recently announced by Spurs that the former England International would leave the Club following the conclusion of his contract.

Numbers

In his time at Hotspur Way, Rose went on to make 214 appearances, scoring 10 goals, and starting the League Cup Final in 2015 and the UEFA Champions League Final in 2019.

He also spent time on loan at Watford, Peterborough United, Bristol City, Sunderland, and most recently, Newcastle United for the second half of the 2019/20 season.

Rose, who made his Spurs debut Spurs back in 2009 against Doncaster Rovers, last played for Tottenham's first team in 2020, but made 13 appearances while playing under Steve Bruce at Newcastle.

Mentor

Despite his contract coming to an end, Rose went and watched the youth players play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and offered advice to them all post-match.

Academy player Elliot Thorpe thanked Rose publicly for his time at the club, and stated he was an example for the next generation of players at Tottenham.

''It’s sad that people will never know how much Danny Rose did for all of us young players,'' Thorpe wrote. ''The most professional and humble player i’ve ever met & a top guy that i could go to for any advice! Thank you Danny.''

His Tottenham tenure didn't come to an end the way he expected to, considering Rose was not granted a squad number for the season and was omitted from the Premier League and Europa League squads.

This season, the 30 year-old played two games in the 'Premier League 2', recording one assist with the Spurs u23 squad.
