Van der Vaart did not think twice about Tottenham offer

Rafael van der Vaart says he didn't think twice about moving to Tottenham.

The Dutchman joined Spurs last week from Real Madrid.

Discussing his move, Van der Vaart said: "It was the last minute on the last day. Tottenham were calling and I was really excited to come to England. It was done in one or two hours.

"For me it was easy. I really like this club and at Madrid it was so difficult to play there so it was better to come to a top club in England. I was only there for two years but I had four different managers and that's always difficult. It's a great club with great people there but at the end of the day you want to play."
