Tottenham attacker Rafael van der Vaart has affirmed his support of new Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas.
The Netherlands international had been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane, but the Dutchman has backed former Chelsea boss Villas-Boas in a clear sign of his allegiances.
“My place is at Spurs, I want to win the title with this club. Each summer my name appears in the transfer market. The race for the top four will be a total war from the very first day,” van der Vaart said.
“The new coach has good plans for me and this is important. I have heard excellent reports about AVB.
“We have very good attacking and if AVB imposes an offensive system the team could be a real spectacle.”
Van der Vaart had been linked with a switch to Bundesliga club Hmaburg, but he is now destined to remain in north London.
He has been a huge success since joining Spurs from Spanish giants Real Madrid for just eight million pounds.
Villas-Boas is already making his mark on the club with two new signings already this off-season, in defender Jan Vertonghen and midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.
