Danny Rose wants to make Tottenham’s new stadium a ‘fortress’ and continue unbeaten run
Danny Rose wants to make Tottenham’s new stadium a ‘fortress’.
Spurs are unbeaten at the £1billion structure, winning their two matches there against Crystal Palace and Manchester City having moved in earlier this month.
A 1-0 victory over Manchester City came in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Tuesday.
Rose gave away a first-half penalty, which was awarded by VAR, but Sergio Aguero failed to score the resultant spot-kick as it was saved by Hugo Lloris.
“Last week when we played Palace, the atmosphere was brilliant,” full-back Rose said.
“And when Hugo saved the penalty, my ears were buzzing because of the fans and how loud it was.
“The plan is to get the stadium back to being a fortress. If you remember the last season at the old White Hart Lane, we were unbeaten. That’s the plan now.

“To make it a fortress again, and make sure teams know that when they come here they’re going to be in for a game.
“Thank you to the fans for making the first two games at the new stadium very memorable.”
Tottenham won the game near the end as Heung-min Son gave his side the advantage going into next week’s second leg in Manchester.
One away goal at the Etihad Stadium could put Spurs right in the driving seat and Rose thinks manager Mauricio Pochettino will tell his players to go and attack.
“It’s not in the manager’s DNA to sit back and soak up pressure and hit teams on the counter-attack,” Rose added.
“That’s not his game. He wants us to show our identity from the first minute, and it’ll be the same.

“We’ll go there to try and win. That’ll be the plan. He wants everybody to show their character, whether we’re losing or winning.
“And I can tell everybody now the plan will be not to go there and sit back because that’s not him.
“That’s not us. The tie’s not over, and we’ll go there next week fully looking to win the game and progress to the semi-finals.”
