Rafa's the gaffer!

Rafael van der Vaart has wasted no time in winning a new set of admirers at White Hart Lane and throughout the Premier League.

And although former players can often be harder to impress, Rafa’s has already won over Teddy Sheringham and Johnny Metgod.

Teddy is the man answering readers' questions in the December issue of our official monthly magazine, Hotspur. And when he was asked for his thoughts on van der Vaart, Teddy didn’t hold back.

“I think he’s a fantastic player. I love watching him play,” says Sheringham. “He just keeps getting forward, he gets chance after chance, creates opportunities, he’s here, there and everywhere and I love that about him.”

And Rafa’s fellow Dutch international Metgod certainly shares that view. We caught up with him at Derby County where he’s currently coaching and Rafa’s already admitted that Johnny’s enthusiasm for Spurs helped him in his decision to move to the Lane.

“He’s an exceptional player,” says Metgod. “He has done very well so far…but what people have seen so far is only the beginning. I am sure there is even more to come.

“He’s an exciting player and will continue to achieve great things with Spurs, I’m sure.”

Don’t miss the December issue of Hotspur; it’s packed with Christmas reading about your favourite club.
