Sandro is confident he'll be fit for the kickoff to preseason with Tottenham as he recovers from a serious knee injury.

The midfielder's rehab with his former club Internacional is going well, he insists, and he looks set to be fit for pre-season.

"I've got three months to go," Sandro said.

"I've started to run, I'm developing. Sometimes I try too much and the knee swells up. I have to listen to the doctor. I have to give the injury enough time, but I dream that I am playing."
