Rafael van der Vaart has revealed that his family miss life in Madrid.
The midfielder joined Spurs last summer for Â£8million and will return to Spain as part of the Spurs side for the Champions League clash next week.
‘Little Damian is the best thing in my life. He speaks Spanish and English but is always saying to me ‘Daddy why don’t we have a pool here? There’s no sun here. It’s not the same as in Madrid’,’ he said.
‘We have a special love for Madrid. Going back to play at the Bernabeu is a dream for me. It’s going to be special.’
He said: ‘I have played in my country, in Germany, in Spain and now in England.
‘But playing at the Bernabeu is unique so I would be pleased to return to Madrid.’
