Brazil midfielder Sandro commits future to Tottenham amid interest from Italian clubs
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro has committed his future to the English club despite the recent departure of head-coach André Villas-Boas.
The Brazilian has been linked with Italian sides Inter Milan and Roma in recent weeks with the January transfer window just around the corner but the fan favourite in north London is very happy at his current club.
Sandro, nicknamed Beast by Tottenham fans, was quoted in the English paper Daily Mirror as saying he doesn’t want to talk to any other football team.
“I have heard that Inter and Roma want me but I’m happy here at Spurs. I have had no concrete contact with anyone and nor do I want any, although, of course, it is nice to be appreciated.”
Since joining Tottenham in 2010, Sandro has become a mainstay in the Premier League side but has suffered two serious injuries.
An ankle injury is currently sidelining the Brazil international but when he is back he wants to help the club qualify for the Champions League.
Sandro also revealed his sympathy for depart head-coach Villas-Boas.
“Of course we still want to win the Premier League. For now, though, the real goal is a place in next season’s Champions League. I felt for Andre but everyone knows that in football it is results that matter.”
