Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro speaks out about ‘war of words’ with manager Tim Sherwood
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro has spoken out and revealed he only tweeted that he wasn’t injured on Saturday to ensure fans weren’t worried about him.
The Brazilian tweeted on Saturday morning that he wasn’t injured and after it was confirmed that he wasn’t part of the playing squad against Fulham, many felt he was hitting back at his manager Tim Sherwood.
However, Lancenet.com spoke exclusively with the midfielder after Sherwood had criticised Sandro and said he wasn’t “good enough” to be in the side at the moment.
Sandro said: “I quietly heard about the news. He did say that and I respect him, I have nothing against him, let him speak.
“I will continue working quietly, I'm a professional. I have to work. Everyone loves me at Tottenham, it is my home.”
The former Internacional midfielder has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane recently, even before his apparent war of words with Sherwood, but he insists he is happy at Spurs.
He added: “What I have to say is what everybody knows, I'm happy here in Tottenham.”
Sandro also commented on news linking himself with a move to Tottenham’s rivals Arsenal.
He said: “If the rival supporter wants me to go to their team, I think I'm doing a good job and being recognised.
“Not only rival, ours too, I just have to thank the fans of Tottenham, who are very dear to me. We have three games and I have got to work.”
