Rose: Levy was bold to sack Redknapp and replace him with AVB
16:07 GMT, 8 July 2012
Danny Rose believes it was a 'pretty bold move' by Tottenham to sack Harry Redknapp, but understands chairman Daniel Levy made the decision to take the club forward.
The 65-year-old left Spurs last month after almost four years in charge at White Hart Lane and was replaced by former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Although Rose is pleased by the Portuguese boss' appointment, he believes it was a big decision for the club to part ways with Redknapp.
'It is a great appointment,' he said.
Bold: Danny Rose is pleased with the appointment of Andre Villas-Boas
'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.
'I am pretty unfortunate not to have met him yet because I am away here, but I am looking forward to going back and meeting him and getting to work with him.'
Rose was speaking at Team GB's Preparation Camp at Loughborough University, where the squad is being kitted out ahead of London 2012.
The left-sided player was included as part of the 18-man squad despite limited first-team football last season.
Rose admitted he had been set to go out on loan this summer, but is not sure how Villas-Boas' appointment will change things.
'We'll see what happens when I get back,' he said.
'It had already been agreed last season that I could go out on loan.
'Obviously things have changed with Harry Redknapp being sacked so I will have to see what happens when I get back.'
