Tottenham’s Brazilian midfielder Sandro scored only his second goal in club colours with his 35 yard effort at Fulham on Saturday. The strike proved to be the winner in a match where Jermain Defoe’s double sealed the points and took us back into the Champions League positions.
Sandro’s goal was similar to his previous one at Chelsea in 2010-11 – it had a different trajectory but was no less powerful and the player says he will be looking to shoot on sight more often.
“It’s my first goal of the season but I’m happy because we won,” Sandro said. “It was a great win. Everyone played really well and we have to continue playing like this.”
“Sometimes you have to shoot!” he added. “I have to shoot more, to try more. It was a good goal. I’m happy because it was an important goal.”
Sandro is a frim fans favourite and Jermain Defoe revealed on Absolute Radio that he’s also one of the major personalities in the dressing room.
“He’s one of the biggest personalities in the changing rooms. The other day I come in and he was just sitting there with his guitar singing, with no audience,” JD said.
Sandro doesn’t exactly need to score more goals to add to his reputation at the Lane but if his radar stays on course, a shoot on sight policy might be a wise approach.
