Video: Roberto Soldado Had A Disastrous Villarreal Unveiling

After a miserable spell at Tottenham, the man still has no luck.

Roberto Soldado came to Spurs with a serious reputation, so much so that he was signed from Valencia in a £26m transfer. Having scored just 16 goals in 76 games, the Spaniard was considered a huge flop, and he recently moved back to Spain – joining Villarreal for £7m.

His grand reveal doesn’t bode well for the move, though. In attempting to kick the ball into the adoring crowd, he missed badly.


At his presentation a few days previous, Soldado said:

“This is a very important step in my career. I’ve been away for two years in which I haven’t been able to give my best, but I’m convinced that I can score lots of goals for Villarreal.

“I’ve spent two very difficult years in England where I lost my confidence. “When their offer arrived I didn’t hesitate as it is a great opportunity to return to Spain and join a big club. I want to return to play at a good level and score lots of goals. I want to go back to being the player I used to be.”

We wish him well.
