Tottenham latest: Sandro return pleases fellow midfielder, Fryers on 'most exciting' game

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Thursday evening

Midfielder Mousa Dembele is pleased by the return of fellow midfielder Sandro, who made his return to the side in last week’s Europa League win against Dnipro, after being sidelined since December.

Dembele is quoted on the official Tottenham website, saying: “He was out for a long time and I’m happy for him – he’s shown everyone this week that he’s back.

“We need all our players back and fit to push everyone to play better – including myself. It’s a tough month ahead.”

Zeki Fryers has said that last week’s Europa League win over Dnipro was the most exciting match of his career so far.

He told London 24: “It was an amazing experience. We just kept pushing and pushing, and eventually we got the result.

“To go another goal down and then come back, that was unbelievable. Everyone was buzzing in the changing room afterwards.

“This is a club that should be getting into the latter stages of cup competitions. I think it’s time and the fans have been patient as well.”

Former defender Sol Campbell described the reception he got when returning to White Hart Lane as 'vile.' Campbell isn't highly thought of at Tottenham since he decided to move to Arsenal after his time at the Lane.

He's quoted in GQ, saying: "That first game I went back [to White Hart Lane], it felt like a sea of blue trying to drown me and in the corner is the red, almost like a beacon of light. And yet, for two to three years I kept Tottenham up, playing nearly every single game and doing three to four people's job on the back line."
