Brazilian midfielder Sandro Ranieri has given an interview to Globo Esporte on Tuesday, and had some interesting things to say about his time at Tottenham Hotspur.
By playing at Spurs during a time when they couldn’t fight for big titles, Sandro left for Queens Park Rangers in 2014. Now he says he regrets having left White Hart Lane so early, especially because some young talents were emerging at the club.
“I regret leaving Tottenham. I had three more years of contract, had just renewed. I rushed,” Sandro Ranieri told Globo Esporte.
“I was one of those loved by the fans, by the team. One of those with more time at the club, four seasons. At that time everyone was young. Kane, Eriksen, Vertonghen. Pochettino had just arrived. I rushed.”
Signed by Tottenham from Internacional on a €10m deal in 2010, Sandro made 106 appearances for the club. After leaving in 2014, he played for QPR, West Brom, Antalyaspor, Benevento, Genoa and Udinese.
He’s rescinded his contract with Genoa last week, and is looking for a new club. Being interviewed by the biggest sports website in the country will certainly help him find one, especially if he’s keen on a return to Brazil.
Despite the long list of clubs he’s played for, Sandro is still only 30 years of age, and surely has a lot ahead in his career.
