Danny Rose agrees with for­mer Eng­land striker Alan Shearer that the na­tional team have be­come a “laugh­ing stock” af­ter Sam Al­lardyce’s depar­ture. The for­mer Sun­der­land boss was forced to step down af­ter just one game in charge of Eng­land af­ter be­ing caught dis­cussing how to cir­cum­vent rules on player trans­fers. “I saw Alan Shearer say English foot­ball has be­come a laugh­ing stock and it’s hard to say but I agree a bit with a man­ager los­ing his job af­ter one game,” said Rose. “I don’t want to say it’s a mess, but it’s not nice for English foot­ball.” Rose, who is part of the Eng­land squad that faces Malta on Satur­day, has also backed his Spurs man­ager Po­chet­tino to be­come Eng­land boss in the fu­ture. “It would be amaz­ing to have him as Eng­land man­ager one day,” added Rose. “What he’s done for Tot­ten­ham is clear for ev­ery­one to see, with the squad he’s built, and that would only be good for English foot­ball if it ever hap­pened.”
