Sandro knee injury takes shine off King surgery
Wednesday 13 July 2011
Spurs suffered another potentially serious blow to their ambitions for next season yesterday after Brazil midfielder Sandro was forced to withdraw from his country's Copa America squad with a knee injury.
There are fears the 22-year-old may have ruptured his meniscus and could require surgery.
Club captain Ledley King, meanwhile, has had a successful knee operation and will rest for 10 days before progressing to full training. He will miss the club's pre-season tour of South Africa.
