Roberto Soldado was in no mood to joke around after a pre-season training session with Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday afternoon.

The Spanish forward is back at the north London club with Mauricio Pochettino’s men as they continue their preparations for the 2015-16 season.

Pre-season training is known to be a gruelling affair for top-level footballers as they work on their fitness ahead of the new campaign.

And Tuesday’s session was certainly no laughing matter for Soldado, if his post on social media was anything to go by.

Soldado shared the selfie above on his Instagram account on Tuesday and wrote: “The time for laughing is over.”

Soldado has scored a mere seven goals in 52 Premier League appearances following his big-money switch from La Liga two years ago.

He made just 17 starts for the League Cup runners-up last term, being used largely as an option from the bench.
