Roma striker Osvaldo blasts critics: Why do Chelsea, Tottenham want me?

AS Roma striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has hit back at his critics.

Osvaldo has been barracked by his own fans this season.

"What makes me most angry is that people say at the same time that I don't put the effort in and that I am too tense," he told SportWeek.

"Of course it's not easy at the moment and there are many mistakes. I am a striker, so I live for the goal and if I miss that then I feel like I'm missing everything.

"However, when I read that my season has been so very negative and at the same time I read that Chelsea, Tottenham and Juventus want me, then it doesn't add up. If I'm so terrible, why am I being linked with these top clubs? If they are interested, then I must've done something right.

"I admit that at times I didn't have the right attitude and that didn't help me. I did expect to score a few more goals this season, but I'm still content with what I have achieved."
