Andros Townsend expressed his support for misfiring striker Roberto Soldado
Tottenham Hotspur’s Roberto Soldado has been a huge disappointment since his £26m arrival from Valencia and has failed to live up to the price-tag.
After missing a sitter in Wednesday night’s FA Cup replay, the striker has been subject to further criticism, but teammate Andros Townsend has quickly leapt to his defence.

The 23 year old claims that the goals will start to flow for the goal-shy Spaniard soon as Townsend himself knows what it’s like when nothing seems to go for you on the pitch.
Soldado missed an open goal at White Hart Lane from six yards out in the 4-2 victory over Burnley, and following the miss the England international ran over to reassure the striker that he would get another chance:
“I felt for him. I have been in that position before where just nothing will go in for you. He played well but as a striker I think he just wanted that goal,” Townsend was quoted by the Daily Star.
“I just ran over to him as we walked off at half time and tried to keep his spirits up. I just told him to forget about the miss and keep going.”
