Our Brazilian midfielder would have caused some concerns when he limped out of Saturday’s game with QPR after just 26 minutes and Sandro’s tweet later in the day raised those concerns about any long term damage ahead of some vital fixtures.
‘Hi Guys I’m in some pain at the moment! On my way to hospital for a scan now so fingers crossed it’s good news… thanks for all support’
After the match however, Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas played down the injury and claimed that it wasn’t as serious as first feared.
“He should be okay for the Manchester United game next week. It’s just a knock on the knee,” AVB revealed.
“He felt a big knock on the knee and thought there was ligament damage but on a further look it looks okay.”
Naturally, Scott Parker would be an able deputy in the centre of midfield but with Sandro back to his immense best, perhaps the majority of Spurs fans would be happier to see the Brazilian back in his familiar position this Sunday.
