Danny Rose hopes Tottenham will give Mauricio Pochettino "what he wants" this summer as the club look to move to the next level.

Pochettino has guided Spurs to a third successive top-three finish in the Premier League and has done so spending far less than the teams around them and having to play their home games at Wembley this season.

But with the clamour for trophies growing stronger all the time, Pochettino, in an alarming change of tone, suggested that Spurs might have to ditch their current policy of frugality and "take risks" to start delivering silverware.

That will have been music to the ears of left-back Rose, who is not averse to giving his opinion on what the club should do after his notorious interview last summer where he told them to splash the cash and pay their top players what they are worth.

While Rose was not wanting to go down that road again, he did urge Daniel Levy and the Spurs board to come together and give Pochettino what he is asking for.

"I have learned my lesson on speaking on that sort of stuff," he said. "It is good that the manager has come out and said that.

"I hope the manager, his coaching staff, the recruitment staff and the chairman can all come together and give the manager what he wants.

"I am fully behind whatever happens in the off-season, I hope we get some good recruits to help us push on and as the manager said the next step is to try and hopefully win something next year."
