Roberto Soldado pays tribute to Tottenham Hotspur fans
Roberto Soldado has reflected on his first Premier League goal of the season.
The Spain international ended his goal drought in the top flight on Sunday as he scored a second-half winner against Everton.
Soldado has been criticised since his £27.5m switch to White Hart Lane from Valencia in 2012, scoring a disappointing six goals in 33 league games.
However, the 29-year-old was clearly moved by the support of the Tottenham fans as he posted his quote after the win with the caption, ‘Thanks’.
The quote in the photo read: “The moment the ref blew for HT everybody sung my name & I welled up a little bit, I had a tear in my eye. It was very special”
Soldado’s only other strike this season came against Nottingham Forest in the Capital One Cup in September.
