‘Eduardo hopeful of Premier League return’

Former Arsenal striker Eduardo revealed that he was keen on coming back to the Premier League.

The Croatian showed great promise during his time at the Gunners but never fulfilled his potential due to a horror broken leg injury.

“I still love the Premier League. I keep in touch with Tomas Rosicky and Bacary Sagna at Arsenal and keep an eye on what is generally happening in England,” he revealed.

‘Holtby’s hope for Soldado’

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Lewis Holtby commented on the confidence of striker Roberto Soldado.

Holtby said that a hat-trick in the Europa League had the ability to improve the striker’s confidence after a difficult start to life at the club.

“Team spirit is very high and the group is close together. Robbie came in from Valencia, it didn’t go how he wanted it to at the start but with those three goals, I hope that gives him a real boost,” he told the Tottenham website.
