Atletico Madrid are facing a backlash from fans in their pursuit of Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado.

The Sunday Express says Atletico fans angry with the idea of chasing Soldado, who previously starred for rivals Valencia.

Indeed, it seems that Atleti fans are still angry about an incident that occurred back in 2012 when Soldado stood on Radamel Falcao's forehead.

Atletico fans took to Twitter on Friday to oppose the move using the hashtag #UnAtletiSinSoldado which translates as 'An Atletico Without Soldado'.
