Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho and left back Danny Rose were reportedly involved in a heated exchange according to The Daily Mail:
Danny Rose was involved in a heated exchange with Jose Mourinho after being left out of Saturday’s game against Watford.
The left-back, 29, sought an explanation from the Tottenham boss after his team had been announced on Friday and Mourinho reasoned that a back injury meant Rose was not in the best shape to figure.
Tottenham drew 0-0 at Vicarage Road, however, believing he was fit to play, an upset Rose took issue with Mourinho again during Sunday’s warm-down training session. The two clashed with voices becoming raised and onlookers describing ‘a big tension in the air’.
Some players were understood to be unhappy at how Rose’s reaction and behaviour had escalated the situation.

Hard to take a side here without having too much information but I would think it’s pretty fair to take side of Mourinho here when Rose has been struggling of late and hasn’t really shown signs of being fit. Let’s see if he is featured versus Norwich City and in The FA Cup this weekend.
