Sandro says he'd shake hands with Tim Sherwood if their paths crossed

Sandro KO Gomes

There were reports that Sandro and the former Tottenham Hotspur boss didn't get on last season.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sandro has said there are no hard feelings between him and Tim Sherwood after it had appeared the pair endured a frosty relationship at White Hart Lane.

Sherwood once left Sandro out of the Tottenham in a game against Fulham in April, because Sherwood said the midfielder wasn't good enough to be in the team. 

Some had suggested the Brazilian would have left the club because of Sherwood, and that the two of them didn't get on, but Sandro has said things are fine between the two of them, though the Brazilian did admit to 'cross words'.

He told the London Evening Standard: “Obviously things happened to me. I had injuries and then at times I wasn’t in the team. There are no hard feelings between me and Tim — he is a good coach.

“Tim had a strong character and I do too. We had some cross words but it’s okay now. For example, after the Fulham game I was in the squad for the last three games. If I saw him now I’d shake hands. It’s all in the past.”

Though it does seem a good relationship is a big factor for Sandro, given how highly he talked about Harry Redknapp as a factor for making the switch to Loftus Road - and Sherwood's style may not have been the same as Rednapp's - though they both come across strong characters.

Despite being linked with a move away from Spurs towards the end of last season under Sherwood - mostly to Serie A clubs - it would appear that Redknapp's influence was the biggest factor in him leaving Tottenham.
