Spurs full-back Danny Rose only had one way to describe Sadio Mane at the weekend – “frightening”.
“It was probably the hardest game I’ve had in the last few years, chasing Mane up and down,” he said.
“I didn’t want to go forward too much because the pace of Mane is frightening”. (via Echo)
Rose admitted he was lucky to get the equaliser after taking a rare chance at venturing up the pitch:
“I took a gamble,” he joked.
“To be honest I think I shanked the goal but they all count and I’m glad that it went in. But overall a point is a fair result.”
Rose tucked in at the back post midway through the second half after James Milner’s penalty had given us the lead on the stroke of half-time.
Has Mane proved to be the best signing of the summer so far? His skill and pace is surely going to frighten countless more full-backs as the season wears on.
