Sandro became a fans favourite at White Hart Lane with his performance on the pitch, including his latest contribution, a 25-yard screamer in the 2-2 draw with Manchester United. 

But another reason why he's so popular with the Spurs' supporters comes from his reputation for being a practical joker off the field.

Sandro's featured a number of times on the club's YouTube channel pulling pranks on teammates, including taking part in their Halloween prank clip alongside Kyle Walker and Andros Townsend.

The Brazilian posted a picture of himself behind the team coach steering wheel on Wednesday when Spurs travelled to Craven Cottage to meet Fulham.

"On the road to victory.. Big win tonight with great goals #COYS," predicted Sandro in his Tweet paired with the Instagram photo, as Metro reported.

It must have been a happy ride as Tottenham went on to win the fixture 2-1, which was Fulham's first after Martin Jol's departure in the weekend. 

Rene Meulensteen's side gave him a glimmer of hope in a flying start as Cottagers' manager, but Spurs had it their way for to end a four-game winless streak with two moments of inspiration.

Vlad Chiriches and Lewis Holtby delivered the decisive strikes late on, to ease the pressure on the Portuguese tactician.

Sandro and Co. now move on to face Liverpool and in-form Southampton in the busy Festive period, with Manchester United ready to take on them at Old Trafford on the first day of 2014.
