Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose on Friday expressed regret over his criticism of the Premier League club over their pay structure while also seeking an exit from the club.
Rose this week spoke of his intention to leave White Hart Lane amid links with Chelsea and Manchester United following his dissatisfaction at how players are supposedly undervalued at Tottenham.
However England international Rose, 27, through his management company tendered an apology but added that his comments were ill-judged.
“Having had time to consider my actions, I acknowledge now that the timing and manner of what I said was ill-judged,” Rose said according to his management company’s (Base Soccer Agency Limited) official statement released on Friday.
“My words were not meant to offend and for that I would to apologise to the chairman, manager, my team mates and the fans. I’d also like to wish the lads good luck ahead of Sunday’s game against Newcastle.”
Rose, who has been out with injury for months, extended his deal at Spurs in September, 2016 June, 2021.
