Struggling Spurs striker Roberto Soldado has blamed himself for his poor form this season. Despite being prolific in La Liga the Spaniard has found it difficult to adapt to the Premier League with the former Valencia man only notching six goals this term.
Soldado did grab a vital winner against Cardiff at the weekend to give Tottenham a much needed three points to keep up the pressure on the top four. But that goal was only his second from open play all season, with four coming from the penalty spot.
The 26m man suffered the ignominy of missing an open goal from four yards against Dnipro in the Europa League recently and at times seems to be cursed as a mixture of bad luck, poor finishing and offside decisions go against the visibly frustrated forward. But after netting against Cardiff Soldado is feeling more positive, though he does not try and blame anyone for his woes this season. We have a great team and I am convinced that we can have a good season. I am the only one to blame for my poor performances, but I’ll get better, he told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.
