Tottenham’s Roberto Soldado ready for ‘most beautiful game’ v Arsenal
Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado says he is relishing one of the "most beautiful games" against Arsenal next week
Roberto Soldado says Tottenham Hotspur’s derby clash against Arsenal is one of the “most beautiful games” in the club’s fixture schedule.
The Spain international has already scored four goals in three games for Spurs following his club-record £26m move to White Hart Lane from Valencia this summer.
And the 28-year-old forward is relishing the chance to continue his excellent goal-scoring form in his first north London derby at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
“Yes, my team-mates have told me what the derby means,” said Soldado.
“Tottenham against Arsenal is one of the most beautiful games for the club and everyone who has come in from outside will want to play in it.
“It’s the game with the biggest rivalry for Tottenham and I cannot wait to play in this environment and I hope we can get the three points.
“It’s always important to score goals and I hope to keep on doing this for the team.
“The welcome I have got since my presentation here in the friendly against Espanyol has been great. To hear the fans singing your name is special and I hope it happens a lot more throughout the season.”
