Roberto Soldado reacts on Twitter to Villarreal win, sends message to Spurs

The former Tottenham Hotspur striker has congratulated the north London side, while also experiencing more joy in Spain.

Roberto Soldado was delighted on Twitter after Villarreal beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1 this weekend - and also sent a message of congratulations to old club Tottenham.

The White Hart Lane outfit were victorious, too, beating Crystal Palace 1-0 thanks to summer signing Heung-Min Son's winner.

And Soldado, who didn't get on the scoresheet this time around but has already hit the ground running in Spain, was full of praise for Villarreal and sent a message to Tottenham.

His message translates: "Amazing today for the entire team, with our love pushing us. Congratulations to the @baloncestofeb and Spurs."

Soldado is clearly keeping an eye on his former club, then, taking to Twitter almost weekly - especially when they've had a positive result.

And things are looking up for the Spanish forward himself. It was like a perfect divorce with him leaving White Hart Lane, as the feelings of love never left - despite things simply not working out at Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino's side do have some tough fixtures awaiting them next up, however, as Arsenal, Manchester City and Monaco are on the Spurs calendar. Soldado, meanwhile, will be up against Malaga when Villarreal travel to the La Liga side on Wednesday night.
