Danny Rose may have issued an apology but most Spurs fans have questioned his sincerity
It's safe to say that it's been a whirlwind 48 hours for Tottenham Hotspur fans.
Supporters of the North London club have already been left frustrated this summer by the inactivity of their club during this summer's transfer window, and whilst fans appear to be keen on new arrivals they well may be just as happy with retaining most of their current stars.
Danny Rose's controversial interview with The Sun newspaper, where the England international questioned some of the club's policies left a lot of fans fearing the worst, with regards to the left-back's immediate future.
The 27-year-old has this morning issued an apology through his representatives for what he has described 'ill-judged' comments.
"Having had time to consider my actions, I acknowledge now that the timing and manner of what I said was ill-judged. Rose said in a statement released through agency Base Soccer.
"My words were not meant to offend and for that I would like 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."
Whilst the apology was welcomed by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino during his pre-match press conference ahead of Tottenham's Premier League opener against Newcastle on Sunday, there are many who are certainly questioning the sincerity of the statement.
Some reports have suggested that the player himself is looking for a move away from Tottenham this summer, with Chelsea and Manchester United heavily linked with a move for the defender. It's thought that despite the apology the player is still keen on making a potential transfer happen, though it's doubtful that the club would part with one of their key assets this summer.
In the aftermath of Danny Rose's apology Spurs fans have taken to social media to have their say.
Don't quit your day job Danny, acting isn't for you.

As statement says, Danny Rose isn't apologising for what he said, just the timing. Stands by comments about #mufc and Mourinho.— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) August 11, 2017
Ye well he should still be benched, let his Eng career take a big knock before the WC and see if he enjoys his money more then!— Michael Meade (@Mix2669) August 11, 2017
What's the point of Rose apologising over being honest? It's like saying "sorry for what I've said but it's true". Makes no sense— Vano (@ItalianVodka1) August 11, 2017
He is a professional, this kind of attitude is miserable and @SpursOfficial can go further without him, anyway he was always injured— Gorgui Moussa (@kingalias91) August 11, 2017
