Roberto Soldado’s assurances to Tottenham Hotspur fans

Christian Eriksen and Soldado Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado is confident that he will start to score goals soon.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado has insisted that he will score goals sooner rather than later.

The Spain international has yet to open his account for Spurs in the Premier League this season, having featured in three matches.

Soldado has provided one assist and has created three chances, while having a pass accuracy of 70%. The 29-year-old also boasts of a shot accuracy of 100%, but he simply cannot score.

On Saturday against Manchester city at the Etihad Stadium, Soldado had a penalty saved and was also thwarted by Joe Hart on another occasion.

Pressure is increasing on Soldado to score in the league, but the striker, who has found the target in the Europa League, is calm and confident.

‘We are producing some good performances and we need to keep this going’, Tottenham’s official website quotes him as saying. ‘I am working hard and I think the goals are coming soon’.

Soldado joined Tottenham from Valencia in the summer of 2013 for a transfer fee of £26 million, but he has yet to win over the club’s fans.

The former Real Madrid striker scored just six goals in the Premier League last season – two of which came from open play – and he seems to be struggling this term as well.
