Van der Vaart praises Tottenham defence after Rovers victory

Rafael Van der Vaart has praised Tottenham’s ‘amazing’ defence after their 2-1 win away at Blackburn on Sunday.

The Dutchman scored twice to seal the points for Spurs, but claims it was the defence, and not he who deserved the plaudits.

“When you score you are always in the headlines, but I think the defenders were amazing. This season they’ve been unbelievable for us,” he told the club’s official website.

“It’s my second time here [at Ewood Park], they play with throw-ins, corner kicks and long balls, it’s really difficult to win here, and it’s a massive compliment to the boys that we did.”

The win was Spurs’ fifth in six games and keeps them well in contention for a top four finish this campaign.
