Frustrated Outcast Sandro Could Leave Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur holding midfielder Sandro is thought to be pondering forcing an exit out of White Hart Lane in the summer after he was snubbed in the first-team selection by manager Tim Sherwood.

Sandro took a swipe at his boss through the social media website Twitter, insisting he is not injured and is ready to play. Still, Sherwood did not let Sandro get playing times yesterday when his team won 3-1 against Fulham at White Hart Lane.

Good morning Guys, just to let you know that i’m not injured ! Hope that we can win the game today,” Sandro said on his Twitter page.

Sherwood hit back at Sandro after the match, insisting that the midfielder’s skill-set “wasn’t right” for the match, adding there are other players ahead of the Brazilian, with the likes of Nacer Chadli and Paulinho the more preferred players.

“I don’t care about the tweet. I don’t go on Twitter. He can tweet what he wants,” Sherwood told Sky Sports.

“I like Sandro’s qualities, but in my eyes it wasn’t right to put him in the squad – other people are ahead of him,” the Spurs boss explained further, who added,””He’s not injured, and he’s fit to play, but he’s not selected because he’s not up to it at the moment ahead of other people.”

The brewing bust-up, whether the two parties acknowledge it or not, is thought to have a few clubs alerted. Indeed, according to Tutto Mercato, three Italian clubs are keeping tabs on the situation – Inter Milan, Napoli and Roma, all of whom are eyeing a solid presence in their midfield line-up, something Sandro can certainly provide.

As to how this saga ends, however, only time can tell.

Sandro joined Spurs in 2010 and his contract expires in 2016.
