Tottenham have to leave new signing Sandro at the airport
Squad selection gets lost in translation
Spurs new boy Sandro had to be left at the airport departures lounge after he mistakenly thought he was in the squad for tonight’s Champions League opener against Werder Bremen.
The Brazilian had got all the details of what time he needed to be at the airport from unofficial translator Wilson Palacios, who didn’t realise that he was not in the squad.
Manager Harry Redknapp and club secretary Darren Eales were left to tell the 21-year-old that he would not be boarding the plane because he was not on the club’s ‘A’ list squad and cannot make the ‘B’ list without spending two years at the club.
He has a behind-closed-doors friendly to look forward to on Wednesday instead.
