Rafael van der Vaart has lavished praise on the performance of Tottenham’s patched-up defence.
Sebastien Bassong and Younes Kaboul were at the heart of the Spurs defence due to injuries to Ledley King, William Gallas and Michael Dawson. VDV may have bagged both goals but he was quick to praise those who play behind him.
Let’s hope for more of the same when we face QPR this weekend!
“When you score you’re always in the headlines, but I think the defenders were amazing. This season they’ve been unbelievable for us,” Van der Vaart told Spurs TV Online.
“It’s my second time here (at Ewood Park), they play with throw-ins, corner kicks and long balls, it’s really difficult to win here. It’s a massive compliment to the boys that we did.”
