A poor Loftus Road pitch ended Sandro’s season. In doing so not it not only robbed Tottenham of one of their key players but perhaps their most important player.
Arguably, this season has seen Sandro step up to become an almost talismanic presence in the centre of midfield. Last season the Brazilian earned the sobriquet “The Beast” for some impressive defensive midfield performances.
This term, however Spurs have seen an extra dimension to his game. Coupled with the physical, almost ferocious presence there has been his ability to drive forward. Sandro had a high pass accuracy, made key passes and assists, taken plenty of shots and a reasonable number of successful dribbles.
Alongside, Mousa Dembel
