England star says UCL clash with Barcelona is a must-win game
Tottenham defender Danny Rose is looking forward to their “must-win” match against Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
Spurs have won their last three matches in all competitions, with their most recent away at Huddersfield on Saturday.
However, Rose says his side cannot afford to concede another defeat in the Europe’s elite competition after their 2-1 loss to Inter Milan.
"It's a massive game," said Rose as Sky Sports quoted, after three hard-earned points at the John Smith's Stadium lifted them back into the Premier League's top four.
"We have to win. We're fully aware of that. We're all bitterly disappointed from how the Milan game finished and no mistakes, we have to win on Wednesday."
The England international is delighted he is a key member of Mauricio Pochettino's plans.
"I'm just happy to be playing," he added. "It's probably something I didn't expect four or five weeks ago. I'm just happy I'm in a position to be selected and I want it to continue."
