Rafael van der Vaart says he feels “at home” at Spurs and sees “no reason” to leave.
Van der Vaart has revealed the influence his manager Redknapp has had in helping him settle in England and stressed he has no reason to leave.
“Harry has made me feel at home,” he told The People. “He loves to win and he always puts a lot of attacking players in the starting XI.
“I’ve lived in Amsterdam, Hamburg, Madrid and now London during my career – so I’ve been in the best cities. But London is good and the schools are great for my son Damian…so there is no reason to leave.”
He added: “Last season I thought maybe we could achieve more than breaking into the top four – but we played so many games and it was too much for us in the end.
“Now we have a chance to be in the top two or three but I think Manchester City, with the squad they have assembled and with their individual players, are too strong this year.
“Beyond that, we should have the same ambition as anyone. Of course Man United always have experience and know how to win but, apart from that, why not? We have a good team.
“I really have the feeling we can achieve something at Spurs.”
