|‘I’M TAKING NOTHING FOR GRANTED’ - DANNY|
Danny Rose admits he is happy with his recent performances in our side – and wants to ensure we capitalise on our early wins as the campaign progresses.
The 23-year-old has put his name on the left-back position since returning from a loan spell with Barclays Premier League rivals Sunderland last term, starting all four of our Premier League matches to date.
And Danny, having helped us claim league wins over Crystal Palace, Swansea City and Norwich City so far, is keen to heed the guidance of Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas in order to ensure he remains a key figure in our squad.
“I’m really enjoying playing regularly and working with the manager,” said Danny, who will hope to recover from an ankle injury sustained in Thursday night's win against Tromso IL in time to face Cardiff on Sunday.
“We’ve had a good start of the season, which is great. We would have all loved to have got something from the Arsenal game as well, but it wasn’t to be and the right response was to win against Norwich. We did that and played some good football.”
Danny earned praise from far and wide for his performances during his loan spell at Sunderland last term, and believes the experience of playing in the North East only strengthened his overall game.
“I was lucky to join a big club and work under two great managers in Martin O’Neill and Paolo Di Canio and they both gave me the license to express myself,” added Danny, who scored that memorable debut volley against Arsenal back in April, 2010.
“I played some good football last season and I’ve carried it into this season.
“From a personal view, I’m happy with how things are going. I’m taking nothing for granted and I want to make it last as long as possible.”
