“An absolute pleasure to have watched him” – A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans are thinking back to the time they had Rafael van der Vaart.

The Dutchman made his Spurs debut nine years ago today and spent two years at White Hart Lane.

In that time, he made 78 appearances scored 28 goals and provided 18 assists but his best moments were saved for the North London derbies.

First, he scored a penalty for Tottenham as they came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 on a famous day for Spurs and then, in the same season, he scored at home against the Gunners again.

These Tottenham fans are heaping praise on a hero of their club’s recent history.

See the best of the reaction below.

Many Spurs fans are remembering just how good van der Vaart was for them and for many it is getting emotional.

Some other Tottenham supporters wished he had stayed in London for longer and are sad thinking about the time he left.
