Canales: Soldado departure a shame

Valencia midfielder Sergio Canales has conceded that it's 'a shame' to see Roberto Soldado leave for Tottenham.

The striker officially signed for the Premier League side on Monday, but the youngster has claimed that the team will move on ahead of the new season.

“His departure is a shame,” Canales told reporters. “He has given so much for us.

“But you have to get on with it because we have a lot of good players.

“It was hard not getting into the Champions League, but we are looking forward to the Europa League.

“It is a trophy with a prestigious name.”
