Former Leeds United and Man City defender Danny Mills has never had a credible reputation as a pundit and he has finally proven how ridiculous he is with an absurd suggestion involving Arsenal and Tottenham.
Mills reckons that in the event that Arsenal fail to sign Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney that Unai Emery should then make a move for Spur’s Danny Rose.
Talking to Football Insider, Mills seems to suggest that Rose would welcome the move because of next years Euro Championships.
“He’ll want to play football and he’ll want to be first choice,” Mills said
“You’ve got the Euros coming up next year, if he’s not playing that jeopardises his chances of making the Euros squad. It could be his last international tournament.
“If Arsenal can’t get Tierney, would they take Danny Rose? They should do.
“The Arsenal-Tottenham thing is of course always going to be an issue but they would take him. Manchester City, he’s probably a little bit old for the demographic they’re trying to bring in. Manchester United, Liverpool – they’re okay. Chelsea can’t sign him.
“Realistically, in terms of where he would want to go, they’d be up there challenging, in and around, what other London clubs could afford him?”
Wow, what can one say? I mean, is this really the level of punditry in English football these days?
I love this part “The Arsenal-Tottenham thing is of course always going to be an issue”
Is he having a laugh? an issue?
Of course, it is a bloody issue, there is no way that Tottenham would sanction such a transfer and to even think that this sort of transfer could happen shows the absolute incompetent that Mills is.
There is no free transfer issue here, there is no release clause or anything like that and any pundit worth his salt would know that.
This is purely an attempt by a low-level pundit to try to be relevant, nothing more nothing less.
This one is never ever going to happen and pundits like Mills need to be called out on their irrelevance and that is exactly what I am doing here.
