The behind-the-scenes documentary on Tottenham gave a glimpse at what led Danny Rose to join Newcastle United on loan in January.

Amazon’s All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur is providing a look behind the curtain of the club last season as Jose Mourinho took over for Mauricio Pochettino. It’s always interesting to see some of those candid moments with players, management, or other club personnel. In Episode 5 of the series, a storyline followed Danny Rose’s move from Spurs to Newcastle United on loan.

Rose approached Mourinho during the January transfer window and expressed his frustration that he played sparingly and wasn’t even in the squad for other matches. The mercurial manager responded by stating that Rose wasn’t good enough in his appearance vs. Liverpool and explained that the responsibility was on the left-back to force his hand into playing him more consistently. Rose essentially said he’d just rather train from home if he won’t get more of a chance. It was a pretty heated scene between manager and player, which Rose stating he would be speaking with Daniel Levy, the club’s chairman, next.

A discussion between Mourinho and Levy showcased that the two interested clubs in Rose were Bournemouth and Newcastle. According to Levy, the Cherries were willing to add him on loan and sign him to a permanent deal if they remained in the Premier League while Newcastle have a policy about players over 26 years old that would make them unlikely to sign him.
