Spurs confirmed the signing of 28 year old Spanish international striker Roberto Soldado yesterday and the player was quickly talking to the club about his hopes for the season. Roberto said that he was honoured to have signed for Tottenham and is looking to repay the club in the best way possible.
“I’m absolutely honoured to be at this club, to wear the shirt that has so much history. I’m hoping that I can score lots of goals to repay the club’s kindness in signing me,” Soldado said.
“Spurs is a great club and a club that deserves to be in the Champions League. I know it’s a hard league and we have to work and play to that level to get there and I will do my best for the team.”
The player also underlined his desire to fire Spurs back into the top four in the Premier League,
“My main aim is to get that number one striker shirt on the pitch and obviously, to score goals and try to get us into the Champions League, where we deserve to be,” he added.
The club confirmed that Roberto will wear the number nine shirt for next season and as yet, this is the only squad number to have been decided. It would suggest that he is AVB’s first choice striker but will anyone join him or are Tottenham settled on Soldado, Defoe and Adebayor as their three centre forwards for 2013-14?
