Soldado: Spain return better than I could’ve imagined
Former Tottenham striker, Roberto Soldado has spoken of his dream return to La Liga with Villarreal, stating it’s better than he ever could’ve expected.
In a recent interview, Soldado has detailed how his return to Spain has gone better than he ever could have imagined. He spoke of how he has been received with open arms by the fans and his team mates, and also how the squad have had a very good start to the season.
“It was a better return than I ever could’ve imagined. I was very keen to come back to Spain and even more so to a club that does everything they can to do things the right way. The reception I’ve received has been second to none and we’ve gotten off to a good start on the pitch, which is the most important.”
The yellow submarine frontman, who has just been awarded player of the month for his side, pointed out how, it was not only important to return to Spain, but to a club that went about their business in the correct way.
He went on to state that it is important to have a well-balanced team, both offensively and defensively, and this is what Villarreal have added a number of new players over the summer and they are all making an effort to get to know each other, and the team spirit is good.
“We know we have just as much attacking potential as defensive prowess, if we work together as a team. We players that have come in are fully focused on adapting to the current squad. Right now, we’ve been efficient and that’s due the team having scoring chances. We need to maintain this form, so the team can imporve and can continue scoring important goals.”
In regards to their debut tonight in the Europa League against Rapid Viena, he underlined how it’s “always a pleasure to play in Europe”, especially with “such a deep and talented squad.”
He also noted how it was important for all players to get minutes and to be ready to play at a high level, and to take advantage of any chances that come their way.
