German newspapers just love covering their pages with news on Rafael van der Vaart. Not a week goes by when the Tottenham midfielder is linked with a return to Hamburg.
The good news is that Rafa has been quoted as saying that he will “probably” still be at the Lane next season. Which is more than we can say about the wantaway Luka Modric.
Rafa pulls no punches about how much he enjoyed his time in Germany and his easy-on-the-eye wife Sylvie is a big celeb in the country.
“It’s amazing how my name has been mentioned in recent days,” he told German newspaper Bild. “I can only say that these stories are rumours – I’ll probably still be at Tottenham next season.”
“It is gratifying to see that people remember my spell at Hamburg in a positive way,” he added. “Who knows, maybe I’ll work there again one day in the future.”
