Sandro so happy to be approaching 100 games for Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur fan favourite Sandro has been speaking to SpursTV about making his 100th appearance for the club this weekend if selected against Chelsea in the Premier League.
The in-depth interview with the Brazilian was conducted in English and the former internacional midfielder spoke of his delight at hearing about his milestone approaching.
Sandro said about his 100th match: “Yes I am very happy, this means a lot for me because I love to play for Spurs.
“I feel like I am at Brazil here because everyone is a friend of mine and family and so it means a lot.
“I am so happy when I hear about this (milestone), lets win so it is more special for me.”
The 24-year-old spoke about his low times in north London as he has suffered two serious injuries since signing in 2010.
He added: “It was hard sometimes. Injuries in both knees and small injuries also, so 100 games means a lot.
“I played at a good level, and then injury and then I come back.
“Now I have to train hard, play hard to be involved again, to be playing in the first team so I go for it again and I am always happy at Spurs, always with a smile on my face.”
Spurs fans often refer to the Brazilian as ‘beast’ due to his destructive nature in midfielder and Sandro loves the endearing chant.
He concluded: “Yes it is amazing. There are no words to say, nothing to say because when you have a bad time you go onto the pitch again and everyone says ‘beast’ and it makes me feel so happy and strong.”
