He’s just as good as Hoddle, He’s better than Chris Waddle, His Missus is a model, he’s Rafa van der Vaart!
The £8 Million Man has proven to be quite a steal this season, earning October Player of the Month honors in the premiership and generally dominating all who challenge him. While Spurs have always had plenty of forwards, van der Vaart adds an element of excitement while pushing up the field.
The stalwart Dutchman can score from distance or lay it off with an elegant touch, making him a danger in all aspects of the game.
What’s more, he knows how to win in the Champions League (see: Real Madrid) and his veteran’s savvy can help navigate his squad through unknown waters ahead.
