Van der Vaart slams ‘boring’ Mourinho

The midfielder has been one of the best players in this season’s Premiership so far, scoring a number of important goals for his new club.

And he puts it down to Redknapp’s refusal to concentrate too much on tactics, saying “there are no long and boring speeches about tactics, like I was used to at Real Madrid. There is a board in our dressing room but Harry doesn’t write anything on it. It’s not that we do nothing – but it’s close to that. Our win at home over Inter Milan was a clear example of playing on intuition.”
