Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has blasted midfielder Sandro for 'not being good enough' to get in the starting XI after the north London side's 3-1 win over Fulham today.

Sandro has not featured for Tottenham in the Premier League since the 1-0 defeat against Arsenal in March.

The Brazilian was left out of Spurs' squad for the match at White Hart Lane today - prompting Sandro to take to Twitter to reveal that injury wasn't the reason behind his exclusion.

"Good morning guys, just to let you know that I'm not injured! Hope that we can win the game today," he wrote.

Tottenham went on to claim a 3-1 in the 25-year-old's absence, with goals from Paulinho, Harry Kane and Younes Kaboul helping to secure all three points.

After the game Sherwood was asked about Sandro's tweet, to which he responded: "What he's stating is correct, he's not selected at the moment.

"I don't think he's good enough to be in the side at the minute, when he shows me he's up to the level of the other players he'll be back in the squad.

"I like Sandro as a player but he has to work hard to be back in the side."

It wasn't long before the midfielder was speaking out again, posting: "Lol lol lol ..."

It is the latest incident in a difficult season for Sherwood and Tottenham. The manager is unlikely to retain his job beyond the summer having taken over from Andre Villas-Boas in December after a run of poor form saw their hopes of a top-four finish go up in smoke.

Following the victory over relegation-threatened Fulham, Spurs are up to 6th with 63 points, although they've played a game more than the teams around them.
