The Van der Vaart family are furious with the Dutch media over the way the Tottenham star has been portrayed during the Euros.

Reports of furious clashes with Holland teammate Mark van Bommel have been angrily denied by Rafael van der Vaart's father, Ramon.

"There's been strange things for weeks about Rafael on TV. Whenever his name is mentioned, it is linked to negative events. He could have been mentally broken," Ramon told NUsport. "What nonsense."
