Danny Rose believes it was a "pretty bold move" by Tottenham to sack Harry Redknapp.

The 65-year-old left Spurs last month after almost four years in charge at White Hart Lane and was this week replaced by former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas. Rose is pleased with the Portuguese's appointment but admits it was a big decision to let Redknapp leave.

"It is a great appointment," he told Press Association Sport. "It was pretty bold move by the club to sack Harry Redknapp. But the chairman's intentions are to take the club forward and everyone is fully behind him and Villas-Boas as well."
