|‘I AM THE BEAST!’|
The Beast has spoken – to say a big ‘thanks’ to Spurs fans.
Sandro has been in outstanding form since returning from a long-term injury this season.
Indeed, in the eight matches he’s started this term, we’ve won seven, drawn one and haven’t conceded a goal. That record can stretch back to pre-injury with 11 wins and three draws in his last 14 starts.
The midfield enforcer was outstanding after being introduced in the second half of Sunday’s encounter against Newcastle, but even he couldn’t get the better of an inspired Tim Krul as the Toon nicked a 1-0 win at the Lane.
The nickname of ‘The Beast’ is a perfect fit for the Brazilian international – and he relishes it. “Of course, it’s fantastic – I am The Beast!” he laughed.
“All the time the fans are shouting ‘Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaassssttttt’ and it’s great, it makes me feel stronger when I’m playing.
“I love the Spurs supporters, they are so passionate and I want to do well for them.
“Even when I was injured and not playing, the fans would still be shouting and singing my name and it made me feel good during what was a difficult time.
“It was hard being injured for so long, very hard, because I love football and I love playing for Spurs.
“I missed playing and I missed making tackles! That’s why I am so pleased to be back out there again. Now I want to keep pushing and make sure we finish in the top four this season.”
