Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado seems to have expressed his frustration at a lack of goals this season by appearing to favourite a post on Twitter which criticised his manager's tactics.

Yesterday I posted a story on GiveMeSport which suggested that the reason the Spaniard is struggling for goals is because Andre Villas-Boas has adopted negative tactics which do not suit his frontman.

Soldado has only scored once from open play during his White Hart Lane career after a £26m deal brought him to North London from La Liga during the summer.

And last night the 28-year-old, who scored 30 goals in all competitions for Valencia last season, appeared to favourite a link to the story which was shared on Twitter.

Although the @R9Soldado account (which has over 628,000 followers) is yet to be verified, we have reason to think that it does belong to the Tottenham striker, with @TwitterUK director Lewis Wiltshire believing it to be official.

The tweet is one of only 12 that Soldado has ever favourited, and the first since September 9.

So what does this suggest? Could the Spurs striker be frustrated with the tactics that his manager has employed so far this season?

It is hard to criticise Soldado, because his service has been poor since he joined the club.

During Sunday's 0-0 draw with Everton - bar his missed header - the Spaniard touched the ball just once inside the box throughout the 90 minutes.

That proves that the support has simply not been good enough for a centre forward who last year scored all of his 24 league goals from inside the penalty area.

Villas-Boas simply set his side up to defend at Goodison Park this weekend, and if his midfield continues to neglect Soldado's ability then the Spurs boss could have a very disgruntled player on his hands.
