Dutch international Rafael van der Vaart has heaped praise on Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, claiming the boss has helped him settle into life in the capital.
Van der Vaart made an £8m move from Real Madrid in the summer and has been in exhilarating form for the club, scoring 11 goals as well as providing a hatful of assists.
The playmaker has said having Redknapp in charge has proved to be a peaceful transition after moving from the Spanish capital, and that he is now settled in life in London.
According to BBC News, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he was mugged in the Spanish capital while attending a football match.
The 63-year-old was in Spain to see Real Madrid’s 1-0 win over rivals Athletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey on Thursday.
Redknapp told the BBC that two men fell to their knees in front of him and tugged at his trouser legs while four other men took money and possessions from his pocket.
Redknapp was in Madrid with assistant boss Kevin Bond when the incident occurred but the Tottenham Hotspur manager decided not to report it to the police.
