Danny Rose will probably only every be remembered for one thing by Arsenal fans – *that* goal.

Since then, he appeared to offer little, but slow progress has seen him cement a starting spot with Tottenham and a regular place in the England squad.

As Arsene Wenger ruled himself out of the running for the England job, stating that the job should go to an Englishman, Rose was gushing about the Arsenal man without a care in the world for what it could do for his fan relations.

“What he’s done for Arsenal over the last 20 years has been brilliant,” he said.

“The football that Arsenal play is breath-taking to watch at times.

“If he was to ever become manager of England that could certainly do wonders for the country. It would be great to have a manager like him with all the experience he has got. I’d be all for that.

“I wouldn’t find it strange. I’m a football fan more than anything. There are Arsenal players in the England camp — it doesn’t mean that I don’t speak to them.

“My best friend in football is Danny Welbeck and he plays for Arsenal so just because Arsene Wenger has been manager of Arsenal, it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest.

“It’s about having the best man for the job.”

Arsenal face Spurs for the first time this season on 6 November and both sides will be looking to lay down a marker as this year’s north London top dog.

They look like they could have Harry Kane back from injury for that game, but that might not necessarily be a good thing for Spurs at the minute.
