Former Tottenham striker Terry Gibson feels the club is selling Roberto Soldado short.
The striker arrived in North London from Valencia in the summer of 2013, but has struggled for form and goals.
"I am surprised and disappointed, but I am going to stick up for Soldado here as he is on his third manager already at Spurs in just over a season, and I do not think that any of them have shown any faith in him," Gibson told the Revista de La Liga podcast.
"I have seen a change in his playing style. At Valencia he was an 18-yard box player, he was aggressive when he needed to be, he could hold the ball up, he could back into central defenders when it was played up to him and when a cross came into the box, he was on the end of it. And when a goalkeeper spilled a shot, he was snapping up the rebound, anticipating any mistakes or loose balls in the box.
"I thought he was a fantastic signing for Spurs, and I am still hopeful that he is going to be, but I am not sure that he is getting the support from the playing systems that the club have had, and I do not think that he has had the support from the managers either, particularly Andre Villas-Boas."
