Sandro: Tottenham dressing room was better under former boss Villas-Boas
The Tottenham Hotspur dressing room was a better place with André Villas Boas at the helm, Brazilian midfielder Sandro has revealed.
Villas-Boas was sacked in December and replaced by Tim Sherwood, who incidentally was relieved of his coaching duties this afternoon.
And when Sandro spoke to The Sun recently, he explained the major difference between Villas-Boas and Sherwood.
"Andre was one who would always speak very closely to most of the squad one on one," said the 25-year-old.
"Tim does most of his talking during training on the side of the pitch rather than afterwards individually with players.
"The dressing-room atmosphere hasn't been a buoyant one in the second half of the season.”
Although the 25-year-old believes the dressing room was a better place under the Portuguese manager, Sandro has refuted claims that players knew the fate of Sherwood.
Quotes attributed to the Brazilian last week insisted Sherwood would leave in the summer, Sandro has tried to play those quotes down though.
He concluded: "For people to suggest we already know what will happen to the manager in the summer is wide of the mark. We only see what the media reports."
