Rafael van der Vaart has had a few things to say about his time at the club in an interview with FourFourTwo magazine.

The former Dutch international’s performances were a joy to behold at White Hart Lane during his two years in England, and he says he regretted leaving when he did:

“I shouldn’t have left Tottenham, though it’s always easy to say that with hindsight.”

Reaction to the interview on Twitter from fans showed there is still a lot of affection for Rafa:


In the interview, Rafa went on to say the main reason why he felt it was the right decision to leave was because AVB bought Gylfi Sigurdsson.

As soon as he was named on the bench for the first game of the season, he decided the time was right to return to Hamburg. If he had been a bit more patient, perhaps he could have remained for a few more years.

He had a couple more seasons at the top of his game in Germany, but injuries and age caught up with him. We certainly saw his best years whilst he was at the club.

  • Too bad he insisted on taking every corner kick. Don’t think we ever scored from one, did we? And did he ever manage to play the full 90 minutes in any match? But he surely did have a touch on the ball. creative enough. And a beautiful wife, but not sure that worked out in the end. Hope he’s doing okay today.
