Sandro plays down Arsenal rumours - 'Tottenham is my home'

Tottenham midfielder Sandro insists he is not looking to leave the club this summer despite a spat with manager Tim Sherwood.

The Brazilian was fit and available for the weekend's clash with Fulham, as he revealed on Twitter, but was left out of Sherwood's matchday squad.

In the wake of the tweet, Sherwood said that the former Internacional ace was simply not in good enough form to be included in the Spurs squad which has further prompted rumours of a possible summer move to north London rivals Arsenal.

But Sandro has made it clear that he is eager to remain at White Hart Lane as he is a much-loved player at a place he likes to call home.

"I quietly received the news... I respect him, I have nothing against him, let him speak," Sandro told Lancenet of Sherwood's comments.

"I will continue working quietly, I'm a professional. I have to work. Everyone loves me at Tottenham, it is my home.

"I'm happy here at Tottenham. If the rival supporters want me to go to their team, I think I'm doing a good job and being recognised.

"Not only rivals, ours too. I just have to thank the fans of Tottenham, they are very dear to me. We have three games and need to work."
