Rafael van der Vaart has revealed that he chose to join Tottenham despite a late offer from Liverpool (and not Bayern Munich, as was reported). Excellent choice, sir.

Van der Vaart told Sky Sports News: “Liverpool were interested. Bayern were not interested.

“In the end you have to have a good feeling, and with this manager I got a good feeling. I am happy and I am going to Spurs.

“I am going to give it my best and hopefully I will play a lot of games and be important for the team. I hope to get a lot of goals and have a lot of fun.”

VdV is also looking forward to seeing if his compatriots in the Premier League have overhyped English football.

“They were always telling me, ‘You have to come to England!'” he said.

“Now it’s happened and I am really looking forward to playing against Dirk (Kuyt), against Nigel (De Jong), against (John) Heitinga.”

    you think you good enough to play for liverpool? NO! You just a second rated player that can only play for 2nd rated team like SPURS! SOHAI!

    I think VDV is a great player. In the world cup however, he was awful… often getting in the way of Sneijder and not producing anything.
