Tottenham and England fullback Danny Rose says he agrees with comments made by former England striker that the national team have become a “laughing stock” following the departure of Sam Allardyce.
Despite his reluctance to accept the comments made by Shearer, Rose says they are just too hard too ignore.
“I saw Alan Shearer say English football has become a laughing stock,” Rose told reporters.
“It’s hard to say, but I agree a bit with a manager losing his job after one game. It’s not good in any sense and whatever stance the FA take after the four games.
“I hope the next England manager will be one for the long term and help us to improve a bit better in tournaments.
And following the sacking of Allardyce, Rose revealed he personally contacted the former Sunderland manager to thank him for the short period of time the pair shared together.
“I saw it and obviously I was in shock,” he said.
“I’ve managed to speak to him since he left. I don’t know the full ins and outs of what has happened but I still wish him the very best for the future – and I told him that when I spoke to him.
“I texted him, sent a message, thanked him for including me in his first England squad and allowing me to earn another cap for England and told him that I was sorry he’d lost his job and wished him the best for the future.”
