Warnock said: “I enjoyed Sandro [at QPR]. He trained hard and I thought he gave us a lift. He’ll do a good job for West Brom, definitely.”
Warnock only worked temporarily with Sandro, linking up earlier this season at Loftus Road when the manager was back at QPR in an interim role.
He sounds pleased by the impact the former Spurs midfielder had upon his team, and although doubts remain about Sando’s fitness, the 26-year-old has a proven pedigree.
His work rate is exceptional, and on his day he can be one of the best destroyer-type midfielders in English football.
The Brazilian international - capped 17 times by his nation - has a wealth of Premier League experience, and at his age he still has many years left at the top level of the game.
The Baggies moved for him as Tony Pulis wanted to add more steel to his midfield, and in signing Sandro on loan he has completed a no-risk deal.
There are no obligations to play Sandro, or keep him beyond the end of this season, but if he does impress, West Brom have the first option to purchase him outright in the summer.
Warnock believes he will be a success with West Brom, and if Sandro gets back to his best form that he showed with Spurs, the Baggies have a truly top class player on their hands.
