Tottenham ace Van der Vaart slams Blackburn: They don't play football

Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart was delighted with victory at Blackburn Rovers.

Van der Vaart revealed afterwards just how hard fought the result was, saying that Blackburn's long ball tactics are hard to counter.

"When you come here [to Ewood Park] it's always difficult," he said. "They don't play football they just play with throw-ins and long balls.

"It's really frustrating because it is always dangerous. They are big guys so it is difficult but at the end when you win then everybody is happy."
