Sandro: Knee problem has ended his campaign

The Brazilian had been one of Spurs' star performers during the early part of the season, until a knee injury suffered at QPR cruelly ended his season.

However, the 24-year-old revealed he is improving slowly, but will not rush his recovery in case of any lasting damage.

"I've started to run again, I've been out for three months, I'm improving," he told Globo Esporte.

"I don't want to skip stages to return quicker. I have to do what the doctors tell me. If I try too hard, the knee will swell again."

Sandro's injury was a huge blow to Spurs' top-four aspirations, but they are still well positioned to mount a serious challenge for Champions League qualification according to the Brazilian.

"We are in a great moment, we have to keep doing this way," he added.

"We have to fight to finish third or fourth in the league."

Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
