‘The worst striker to ever play in the Premier League’ Twitter reaction to Roberto Soldado’s imminent exit from Tottenham

Roberto Soldado‘s imminent departure from Tottenham and the Barclays Premier League altogether has been a hot topic on social media.

The Spaniard is set to end two miserable seasons in North London by joining Liga BBVA outfit Villarreal after the two clubs agreed a fee for the 30-year-old on Friday evening.

Soldado’s Spurs career did get off to a great start as he netted the winner from the penalty spot against Crystal Palace on his debut, however, his time in England will ultimately go down as an unsuccessful risk as he managed to score a further six goals in the league in two full seasons at the club.
