Arjen Robben has likened new Tottenham signing Rafael van der Vaart to Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

The switch to Spurs is the latest chapter in his footballing life and one which Robben insists can lead to glory for the north London club.

Bayern Munich star Robben said: "For fans who have not seen a lot of him, I would compare him to Cesc Fabregas. He can play out wide, but his ideal position is playing in the middle of the park as playmaker.

"Spurs can play him as they wish but he is by far the most talented player in their squad. If they don't build the team around him in the middle, it will be a big waste."
