A club interested in signing Danny Rose last summer wanted to make sure he was not "crazy", the England defender has revealed.

In the wake of his revelation, a club interested in signing him insisted they wanted to meet him to check on his mental state.

He told the BBC One documentary, 'A Royal Team Talk: Tackling Mental Health': "I think there's still a long way to go in football because in the summer I was speaking to another club, and they said, 'The club would like to meet you, just to check that you're not crazy'.



It forms part of the Mental Health Awareness Week and Rose and other footballers such as Peter Crouch, Thierry Henry and Gareth Southgate use the documentary to highlight the importance of talking about men's mental health.

The potential move fell through, but Rose, who is still angry at the situation, says the unnamed club in question have scuppered any chance of signing him in the future.

Rose, who has also spoken out strongly on racism, featured five times for the Three Lions on their way to the semi-final of the World Cup.

The Tottenham left-back opened up about his struggles with depression in the build up to the 2018 World Cup, an illness which was triggered by a significant knee injury and the death of a close family member.
