Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado admits his struggles at White Hart Lane could have led him to wanting out earlier in his career. The 28-year-old joined Spurs in the summer for a then club-record fee of £28million.
"If all this had happened to me when I was 22, I would have probably returned home after a month, but I believe it is a positive experience for me, my family and for the education of my children," he told Radio Onda Cero.
"I am the only one responsible for my poor form, but I will get better.
"We have a great team and I am convinced we can have a good season."
He admits his winner against Cardiff was important for him, adding: "It was a much-needed goal for me and especially for my team-mates and the fans.
"Despite all the time I have gone without scoring a goal, the support they have given me has been incredible.
"Every time I touch the ball I feel there is great expectation and people are hoping for the best for me - I feel wanted here even though I haven't given them anything at the moment."
