Van der Vaart promises to work hard for Spurs


Rafael Van Der Vaart

Rafael van der Vaart has promised to work hard to become a success at Tottenham Hotspur.

Our latest signing cannot wait to get started with life at the Lane and is relishing the prospect of turning out for Spurs in the Champions League.

“I must adapt quickly to the country, the life and the football. But I don’t think that will be a problem for a Dutch footballer who has already worked in Germany and Spain,” he told The People.

“During the summer I had many offers from big European clubs, but my challenge was to play for Real Madrid and work with Jose Mourinho.

“After the club confirmed I was no longer in their plans, the best solution was to leave. Tottenham were interested for some time but it wasn’t feasible until the last moment.

“The offer arrived on Tuesday morning and I had little time to decide, but I hope I have luck in my new adventure.

“My wife supported the choice and we are prepared for the change from Madrid to London.

“I have played many matches against Premier League clubs and the quality is enormous. I hope Spurs are successful but, for now, all I can promise is hard work.

“Many footballers dream of playing in England and now I have this chance.

“Tottenham are one of the biggest clubs in England, and this season the fact we are playing in the Champions League means it is a great club to be at.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. lets hope he and the team will improve even more this term so if we need to strenghen the team in january we will at least look like a good place to come with the hope of winning trophies!

  2. This is one of the most important signings we have made in many years. A player of true, proven quality. It allows us to change formations which will help in the CL. You can play a lone striker with him behind the front. and his pace and ability to score completes this player.

    I just wish HR would not loan out some of our young talent so much. This Honduran kid Lozano reads well, and I would be looking to get him on the bench at lease for some of our domestic games. I believe we don't have a reserve side any more, hense why we loan players out. This is a bad way to nurture our young talent. These kids need to have a feeling of belonging which they won't feel with Hull or Portsmouth.

  3. i think the team will have to now build around van der vaart as he is that good of a player if the team doesnt perform then he cant do his work us i think the formation has to change now to a 451, with van der vaart behind defoe and he will make defoe into world class striker
