Interview with Sandro, one of the rising stars of Brazilian football
New interview with Santos of Tottenham, formerly of Internacional in Porto Alegre, in The Guardian. It’s a great chat about his career up-to-date with plenty of info from his time in Brazil. Here’s a snippit:
“I’d watched how Tottenham had qualified for Europe, so I travelled to England looking forward to playing in the Premier League but also in the Champions League, the best competition in the world. But, when I got to London, the manager told me he hadn’t put my name down in his European squad. I accepted it, but it was like a cold shower after everything that had happened: the Copa Libertadores, Brazil, the move to England. I was really disappointed, I’ll confess, but I had to accept it.
