VIDEO: Spurs flop shines in MOTM display on La Liga's final day

Former Tottenham Hotspur player Giovani dos Santos scored one and set up the other in Villarreal's 2-1 win over Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Giovani dos Santos scored the first goal and set up the second as Villarreal finished their La Liga campaign with a win.

The Mexican front-man had not found the net in the league for approaching two months.  And yet against Real Sociedad he looked close to his best, putting in a man-of-the-match performance.

He will no doubt be hoping this is just the start of a fine run of form as he hopes to make waves for his country at this summer's World Cup.  But for now he should simply be happy with his day's work.

Ghosting down the right flank, the ex-Spurs man unleashed a fine shot with his left foot that nestled into the far corner of the net.  He would later set up teammate Ikechukwu Uche for the second.

Reported Arsenal target Carlos Vela got one back for the hosts but it was too little too late.

Giovani finishes the campaign with 11 goals and eight assists in La Liga; not bad for a player branded a flop during his time at White Hart Lane.

While he had few chances at Tottenham, one wonders if he could have made it at the club if he had moved there a little later in his career.
