Sandro jumps to defence of Tottenham boss Villas-Boas

Sandro has defended his Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas.

AVB is under pressure with Spurs stumbling in recent weeks.

Brazil international Sandro told the London Evening Standard: "The manager is a great guy, a great coach and will be fine. It's unfair for him to be under pressure and he doesn't deserve it.

"The coach helped me a lot when he came [in the summer of 2012] because my English was still only so-so. I could understand it but when he came we could communicate in Portuguese and he helped me with my game.

"It's normal in football to have to live with expectations. It's our life. We are under pressure all the time so footballers and the coach have to win. Now because we are a big team the pressure on us to win is even greater but we are not in a bad position."
