Rafael van der Vaart is angry with Tottenham over their attitude towards the Europa League.

The Dutch star spoke out after being left out of Thursday's clash with PAOK Salonika.

Van der Vaart is fit again four weeks ahead of schedule after tearing a hamstring. He said: "In England they are not interested in the Europa League - only the Premiership.

"But I would have loved to play in the Europa League. It would have helped me regain some rhythm."
