Roberto Soldado favourites tweet announcing Baldini's Tottenham exit

The former Tottenham Hotspur player is still keeping tabs on his old club.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado has favourited the tweet that announced the exit of the club’s technical director Franco Baldini.

Baldini has been at White Hart Lane since 2013 and he has made plenty of headlines for some of the transfers he has had a hand in at the club. One of those was the deal that brought Roberto Soldado to Tottenham for £26million from Spanish side Valencia (as reported by the London Evening Standard).

However, Soldado’s move did not go according to plan and after scoring just 16 goals in 77 matches for Spurs, he moved back to his homeland where he now plays for Villarreal.

Soldado has hit the ground running this season, scoring two goals and providing three assists in just five matches to date, but he is clearly keeping up to date on the goings-on at Tottenham.

The North London club announced the news of Baldini’s departure on Monday morning and Soldado quickly favourited the post on his Twitter account.

It remains to be seen if the player meant anything by the act and which part of the message he was even showing his appreciation for, but having seen so many of his signings already leave Tottenham, now Baldini has joined them in heading for the exit.
