Rafael van der Vaart's hectic day ended with a mild training session, his first as a Real Madrid player.
Rafael van der Vaart was presented today as Real Madrid's latest signing. Over two thousand fans greeted him at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium as he donned the Real Madrid kit for the first time. After his first press conference and exclusive interview with Realmadrid.com, the player was ready to meet the squad later in the day.
He arrived in Real Madrid City at 19:00 and attended a mild session with 14 other players. They all took part in a practice game devised by Bernd Schuster.
Van Nistelrooy and Robben were close to Van der Vaart at all times, talking to him about the Club and assisting him with the language.
Rafael also had a chance to see all the facilities at Valdebebas, and was thrilled with what he saw.
