Soldado targeting Champions League with Tottenham

6 August 2013 10:38

Roberto Soldado is aiming to fire Tottenham into the UEFA Champions League after sealing his move from Valencia.

The 28-year-old striker passed a medical on Monday to complete his transfer to White Hart Lane, and he is now targeting a top-four finish with the club next season.

During a three-year spell at Valencia, Soldado was top scorer in each season, netting 80 goals in 145 games to help the club to two third-place finishes and a spot in the UEFA Champions League.

And following his club-record move to Tottenham, the striker is aiming to maintain that record.

"I’m hoping that I can score lots of goals to repay the club’s kindness in signing me," he told the club's official website.

"I’ve come here as a striker to score goals. I always try to achieve more goals in the next season, so that will be my aim, to score as many goals as I can for Spurs next season.

"My main aim is to get that number one striker shirt on the pitch and obviously, to score goals and try to get us into the Champions League, where we deserve to be."

Soldado was part of the Spain squad that reached the final of the FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil in June.

He has won 11 international caps, netting six goals.
