Tottenham midfielder Sandro visits Brazil squad on crutches
He may have been on crutches following an operation in January, but Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro took the chance to catch up with old friends on Tuesday evening, visiting the Brazil squad at their Wembley hotel.
Sandro, who underwent surgery to repair a damaged anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his right knee, will miss the rest of the 2012-13 season, but has left his Tottenham side in fine position to seal a Champions League place for next season.
The powerful holding midfielder had been a regular part of the Brazil squad under former manager Mano Menezes and played for his country at Wembley, having featured at the Olympic Games.
Having made himself an essential member of Spurs' side under new manager André Villas-Boas, he would likely have retained his place in the squad—had it not been for injury.
Now, with his season over and the Confederations Cup coming too soon, the former Internacional player must set his sights on returning to full fitness for next campaign and, hopefully, impressing in the Champions League.
