Ian Wright has claimed that the Tottenham Hotspur fans would back Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to sell Danny Rose to Manchester United.

The 27-year-old full-back is rumoured to be one of Jose Mourinho’s top targets ahead of the January transfer window given Manchester United’s lack of quality in the position.

The Red Devils boss has used Matteo Darmian, Luke Shaw and Daley Blind in the role but the trio have all failed to convince in the role.

Manchester United veteran Ashley Young has made the left-back spot his own in recent weeks following a return of three goals in two games.

The former Aston Villa midfielder has scored in victories over Brighton and Hove Albion and Watford.

But Rose is facing an uncertain future at Tottenham after being dropped for Tottenham’s 2-1 loss to Leicester City mid-week following his criticism of Mauricio Pochettino’s team selection.

Spurs sold England international Kyle Walker to Manchester City in a £50m deal in the summer.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes the Tottenham fans would support Pochettino’s decision to sell Rose.

“They’d back Mauricio because of what he is doing and the project,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.

Rose established himself as England’s first-choice left-back thanks to his impressive performances in the Tottenham team under Pochettino.

The 27-year-old’s season was cut short last term following a serious knee injury midway through the 2016-17 campaign.
