Pienaar's a Rafa fan!

New signing Steven Pienaar knew all about the brilliance of Rafael van der Vaart before the South African moved south from Everton to join us in January.

Pienaar played alongside Rafa in Holland for Ajax. And when asked by Hotspur magazine to recall the best goal he has ever seen, Steven opts for Zlatan Ibrahimovic (also for Ajax) – and a cracker from Rafa.

He recalls: “Rafa scored a great goal with his heel against Feyenoord; it was a brilliant goal in such a big game.”

And he includes himself in his top all-time five-a-side line up alongside Nigel De Jong, Mikel Arteta, Dennis Bergkamp and goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenberg. “Of course I’d be in there,” he smiles.

Read the full feature in the current issue of Hotspur where Pienaar talks about his early days, influences, likes and dislikes in our exclusive ‘High Fives’ section.

In fact Hotspur is packed with features that every Spurs fan will want to read. It’s on sale now so don’t miss it!
