Jose Mourinho has rejected claims from Danny Rose that the England left-back was not given enough of a chance under him at Tottenham.

Rose joined Newcastle on loan last month and told BBC Radio 5 Live he knew he was not going to be involved at Spurs.

But Mourinho hit back saying: 'Olympiacos, Bayern Munich and Liverpool and I gave him a great opportunity to show what he's capable of doing.

'It was a great opportunity to play three very important matches.

'He played against Liverpool, he played against Olympiacos, probably the two more important matches we had to play, and against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

'So even for Danny Rose it was a great opportunity to play three matches and show me what he's capable to do.'

Rose has joined Newcastle until the end of the season when he will have one more year until his contract expires at Tottenham.

Mourinho arrived at Spurs in November to replace Mauricio Pochettino.

'I knew after a month I was never going to play,' said Rose. 'It was difficult going out to train knowing I wasn't going to play.

'It's not worked out, but full respect to him and what he's doing at the club. He took over with the club 12 points adrift of Chelsea [now in fourth place] and now it's four.

'I have to be honest, I thought I would continue playing.

'I do feel I wasn't given as much of a chance as everybody else in the backline. I did want to play for him.'
