There’s no doubt about Danny Rose’s quality. He’s a great player. “But like all players with quality, he needs to be focused on his job — focus, train and care about yourself and don’t think too much. “I’m always saying, ‘Danny — hey, you’re thinking too much, you need to stop, work and deliver the job we want!’ “When he arrives at the training ground, he asks, ‘What are we going to do? Laps, a training session, a tactical session? Gym or no gym? Shower or no shower? Eat or not eat?’ Stop, relax! “We think for him, but sometimes he tries to think for us. We’ve said, ‘Danny, you spend too much energy in thinking about everything. You need to stop. When you drive home, you can start to think again.'”He spends too much energy and then he doesn’t have energy for what he needs to do. And that is a dangerous situation.”
