A 2010 World Cup finalist, Rafael van der Vaart remains a hugely popular figure amongst Tottenham fans despite only spending a little over two seasons at White Hart Lane.
After joining Spurs from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day in August 2010, the Dutch playmaker became an integral part of the side and went on to score 28 times in 77 appearances before choosing to depart in 2012.
Van der Vaart’s impressive performances in midfield played a big role in Tottenham reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2011, but his 4 goals in as many games against North London rivals Arsenal is arguably the main reason he attained cult status among fans.
Just a couple of days ago the veteran midfielder, now 35, showed that he also remembers his time with the Lilywhites as fondly as the fans do.
On the 8th anniversary of his Premier League debut, Van der Vaart took to Twitter to express his love for Tottenham and thank them for the memories. Check out his classy tweet below:
