Sandro is becoming famous for his love of music and singing in the UK.
Defoe told Absolute Radio: "He’s one of the biggest personalities in the changing rooms. The other day I come in and he was just sitting there with his guitar singing, with no audience. I said 'Sandro, what you doing mate?' He’s got a good voice to be fair and he’s a fantastic player, he’s strong and he’s done well for us and that.
"Yeah, it’s a game that I’m looking forward and I’m sure that all of the rest of the lads are looking forward to that fixture, it’s a big one."
