Tottenham signing Van der Vaart angry with Holland treatment

New Tottenham signing Rafael van der Vaart blew his top after Holland's victory over Finland.

The midfielder was furious with coach Bert van Marwijk for substituting him with 15 minutes of the game still to run.

"I try to stay calm and not complain. But, anyway, I am MAD, yes," said Van der Vaart.

"I cannot remember when I last played a full match for the Oranje. I am always the first to be changed. It irritates me.

"What now? I head off to London. Going to a fresh environment. But again, here I am not happy.''
