Tottenham 3 Fulham 1: Sandro claims he is not injured, just left out of Tottenham's squad by manager Tim Sherwood

The Brazilian tweeted to say he is fit but was not in squad to face Fulham

Tottenham star Sandro has taken a swipe at manager Tim Sherwood claiming he is not injured and instead was left out of the squad to play Fulham on Saturday.

The Spurs midfielder took to Twitter to tell fans that he was fit and wished good luck to his teammates ahead of the game.

The Brazilian posted the message just hours before the London the derby kicked off, he wrote: “Good morning Guys, just to let you know that I'm not injured ! Hope that we can win the game today.”

Sandro hasn’t featured for Tottenham since March 16, the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in which he was substituted, but would now appear to be fit and ready to play.

This is just another problem for boss Sherwood who has had to endure a tough season in charge of Spurs and is expected to be replaced by Chairman Daniel Levy in the summer.
