In order to advance his sporting career, the 15-year-old moved to Denmark to live with his father, ex-HSV professional Rafael van der Vaart (38).

I’m bursting with pride,” reported Sylvie Meis then on Instagram about the special event in her son’s life. The club revealed on its official Instagram account that the contract runs until 2023 and Damian van der Vaart will play as a midfielder in the U15 team.
