Former Internacional midfielder Sandro doesn't expect to make an instant impact at Tottenham.
Despite the high expectations of manager Harry Redknapp, who said last week Sandro would definitely be in his 25-man squad this season, the player recognised he would have to build a new reputation in English soccer.
"It's a new life. I know they have their players there, whom the club respects. I'll be arriving there as a national team player too, and a Libertadores champion, but I know I'll have to start from zero," Sandro told Brazilian media. "I've never played there (in England), the fans don't know me. I like that, that kind of challenge. It's going to be tough for me but I feel prepared."
