Hat-trick doesn’t guarantee Soldado start, admits AVB


Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he doesn’t know who will start up front against Liverpool at the weekend, despite Roberto Soldado netting a hat-trick in the Europa League last night.

The Spaniard, who has struggled to adapt to English football, was on top-form last night for Spurs bagging three out of their four goals against Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, but his manager has admitted that it may not be enough for him to start at the weekend.

Tottenham will play host to Liverpool on Sunday in a massive clash in the Premier League, and Villas-Boas has admitted that he will have to make a tricky decision about who to start up front.

“We have to think about it,” said Villas-Boas of Soldado’s chances.

“It’s a bit premature. We always wanted to give this game to Roberto after two games in a row for Jermain Defoe.”

“Jermain was deserving of his chance as well,” added Villas-Boas. “Now it’s about putting the best possible strategy of the game and seeing what we can do.

“What this will help is put the player back with confidence with his final touch and a striker always lives off goals so it’s extremely important.”
