Tottenham’s Sandro once again edging closer to first team return
Sandro is firmly on the recovery trail at Tottenham Hotspur according to the Evening Standard who released information today regarding the Brazilian.
The 24-year-old hasn’t played for the first team since being part of the side that was defeated 5-0 by Liverpool in December.
He exited the Premier League match with a calf pull and unfortunately has picked up several niggling injuries since which have ruled him out of action under new Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood.
Sandro made a return last week playing in an under-21 match for Tottenham but was subbed relatively early, a substitution which coincided with the U21’s self-destructing and losing 5-2.
The Standard insist though that they have been told this was for precaution and they also believe that the former Internacional midfielder took part in a training match later in the week.
Sandro could have played against Norwich at the weekend but like before was cautiously handled and it was decided that he wouldn’t be rushed back for that match.
The Brazilian is likely to play some part against Dnipro on Thursday night especially considering Tottenham trail the Europa League tie 1-0.
Sandro is a key figure for Spurs and a huge favourite with the fans. They and everyone else at the club will be keeping their fingers crossed that the 24-year-old is back in the starting team soon.
