La Ling “Responsible” for Van der Vaart’s Shape

Rafael van der Vaart, a pillar of the Dutch national team replaced hamburgers with kilometers.

Rafael van der Vaart had problems with excess weight during his years spent in Ajax Amsterdam. The 25 years old midfield was considered one of the biggest talents of Dutch football, but he transferred “only” to Hamburg three years ago. In spite of that, he is not only one of the leaders of HSV but also the Dutch national team today. It is interesting that his extraordinary football abilities are supplemented by excellent physical condition. He belonged to the players covering the largest distances during the recent European championship. Just four years ago, before the championship in Portugal, Dick Advocaat said that his body weight contained 17 per cent of fat.

The man “responsible” for this change is one of the owners of AS Trenčín Tschen La Ling. The uncompromising Dutch taught the creative midfield new nutrition customs that were totally different a couple of years ago.” We made some tests and came to significant findings. The problem was food. Van der Vaart was a top sportsman, but 80 per cent of his nourishment contained fats while carbohydrates and proteins comprised only a small fraction of it. Mainly carbohydrates are the necessary “fuel” for interval sports like football. In the upcoming days, Rafael did everything for his talent,” said La Ling for AD Sportwereld.

During his years in Ajax, Van der Vaart went through many hamburger “cures” with meat balls after training sessions. “Sportsman’s body is his capital so he has to take care of it accordingly. It is simple. When you put regular fuel to a formula 1 car, you can hardly expect success,“ commented Ling and the player with Spanish-Dutch roots added; “My nourishment is better than during my Ajax times. I used to have a lot of muscle problems before. This is my first season almost without such problems. I have played 60 matches and I still feel up to some more.” La Ling is also taking care of John Heitinga and Wesley Sneijder. In his opinion, also other players such as Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben need a change in this regard.
