Rose eager to go out on a high

Spurs booked their place in the biggest club game in European football with a miraculous semi-final comeback at Ajax, where they recovered from a 3-0 aggregate deficit at half-time in the second leg. It came 24 hours after Liverpool's heroics in turning around their tie against Barcelona and the two English sides will meet in Madrid on June 1. Rose's future at Spurs has been uncertain and he was free to leave the club last summer before going on to re-establish himself as Mauricio Pochettino's first-choice left-back. Whatever is on the horizon for the England international, the final could also be the end of the road for this Spurs group as Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld have as yet failed to agree new contracts while a host of squad players will be made available to leave in the summer. Rose, though, insists all focus will be on lifting the silverware and creating history in the Spanish capital. 'I keep seeing my name that I'm being sold,' Rose said. 'So if that's the case and it's going to be my last game for Tottenham against Liverpool, I'm hoping to go out with a bang and lift a trophy. 'It's a Champions League final, so individual situations have to take a back seat and you have to put the club first. 'We are going to do that. We do realise we have a chance to make history.'
