Liverpool beat Tottenham in the Champions League final by 2 goals to nil ten days back and the recognized English players from both the teams were called up to represent their country in the inaugral edition of the UEFA Nations League finals. Danny Rose was part of the Spurs team that lost the exhausting battle in Madrid and feels sharing the dressing room with his Liverpool counterparts is quite bothersome.
“It’s not draining coming to play for your country,” he said.
“It is a bit draining having lost last weekend and having to share the camp with Liverpool players. You are reminded every day that you lost the final and that was a unique experience for me.
“I have never been through that myself. I was definitely tired from a long season with my club and having to come to England didn’t help. But as I said, whenever you’re selected for England it is a great occasion. It is one I will always welcome and cherish.”
When asked about how much impact the England setup have had with the presence ofTrent Alexander-Arnold, Henderson and Joe Gomez, Rose added: “They’ve been great.
“We have a great squad here. I have known Jordan for 10 years now. He has been fine, we have spoken about the game.
“Our congratulations go to them. I couldn’t have asked for either of them to have been much better than they have.”
