Luckily, Rafael van der Vaart’s five-year old son Damian looks to have inherited his old man’s footwork and not his workrate if this video of the wee nipper charging around at Spurs Lodge, as posted on Twitter by the Tottenham midfielder himself, is anything to go by…

VDV tweeted: “Proud of my son, already playing like a champion at Spurs training!”

The Dutchman then moved to clarify the 2010 date on the footage by adding: “Don’t look at the date of the video, got a new camera and haven’t set the date yet.”

While we’re on the subject, Jack Wilshere has also been posting footage of his sprog in action, with little baby Archie already looking pretty serious in the keepy-uppy department despite having not been in existence for as long as most of my underwear…

    I watched the video and thought to myself, “I better make an Arsene Wenger joke in the comments, that’ll be good stuff.”
    Word is Wenger’s willing to part with £800,000 for the dutch starlet.
