Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has heaped praise on Sandro.

The Brazilian has produced a string of impressive performances for Spurs in recent weeks, becoming an integral part of the side's midfield in a holding capacity.

However, the former Internacional star showed he's got some potential going forward after scoring a spectacular opener in the 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge, and Redknapp has been impressed by the all-round attitude of the 22-year-old.

“It was a fantastic goal, a great strike. He really covered some ground at Chelsea, he worked his socks off for us in there," the manager told the official Spurs website.

“All I said to him when he came over (after scoring the goal) was that he wanted to hunt Frank Lampard down everywhere and I just told him not to go chasing after him but to wait until he came in the final third of the pitch, that’s when he had to latch onto him.

"He was just going too deep with him and we didn’t want that. He’s a good player and I like him a lot, a young lad with a bright future.”


Tottenham Hotspur skipper Michael Dawson and his defensive partner Younes Kaboul have also been singing the player's praises, and the pair have also been impressed by the player's quick integration at White Hart Lane.

“He’s been amazing since he’s come in. He wins balls, gets in amongst it and we all know now he can score goals after that strike at the weekend. Everyone was delighted for him,” said Dawson.

Kaboul added: “He scored a magnificent goal and really showed that he is a top-quality player.”
