Ex-Spurs striker Roberto Soldado has picked up from where he left off at his last club, by failing to completely miss the target when it was easier to hit it.
Soldado was being unveiled in front of Villareal fans when a ball was passed to him. Ever the gentleman, the striker decided to boot it into the crowd but instead of me describing that to you in detail, here is a video of it:

The most incredible thing about the footage is that Soldado misses the entire lower stand twice. In a row. So now there are just footballs rolling around in the top deck - footballs that will never know love, footballs that will never experience the feeling of being smashed through the back of a net to an eruption of noise from the watching crowd. Footballs that represent the inner turmoil of Roberto Soldado.
The potential to be loved was always there but now they sit, simply existing somewhere in a stadium. Club staff can rescue the balls, but Soldado's shattered dreams? His confidence? The way he wears his hat?! No... no-one can take that away from him.
