Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Sandro performance against Dnipro

Sandro KO Gomes

Sandro featured in a decent performance which saw Tottenham defeat Dnipro to advance in the Europa League.

Sandro made a much anticipated return to the Tottenham Hotspur starting line-up last night against Dnipro as goals from Christian Eriksen and Emmanuel Adebayor helped Spurs to a 3-1 win.

The beast has been missing with a troublesome hamstring problem, which has left head coach with Tim Sherwood with no other option than to nurse him back to full health before using him in competitive action.

He managed to complete 76 minutes of the game last night before he was subbed off for another Sherwood midfield favourite; Nabil Bentaleb.

The performance and the game time will do Sandro’s confidence and fitness a lot of good because it’s important his match fitness improves rapidly over a very important final chunk of the season for the North London club.

What Sandro injects into the side which they don’t have is a real presence and a little bit of fight in midfield, which is important for any side looking to get into the top four before the end of the campaign.

Tottenham are blessed with several talented midfielders across the middle of their side but they have lacked a degree of passion and intensity in Sandro’s absence which he guarantees.

The challenge now for the player will be to show consistency of the impressive display that he showed against Dnipro in the higher intensity and higher tempo of Premier League play.

Tottenham’s next game is against Cardiff City this Sunday, which means Sandro has very little time to recover between now and kick-off time on Sunday afternoon. However, he should at the very least make the bench and he’s a good player to have coming on late in a game to inject some passion and energy into the team.

Here’s what Spurs fans made of his performance last night via social media site Twitter.
