MIDFIELDER Sandro (pictured) believes the arrival of a new manager in the summer could reignite his Tottenham career.
The 25-year-old has struggled to re-establish himself in Spurs midfield in the second half of the season after suffering a calf injury in December and was labelled "not up to it at the moment ahead of other people" by boss Tim Sherwood after being overlooked for the April 19 game against Fulham.
Sherwood has opted to use Paulinho as his main defensive option in the middle of the park – leaving Sandro out of the first-team picture – but the Brazil international hopes the seemingly likely departure of Sherwood at the end of the campaign could rejuvenate his prospects in north London.
"He (Sherwood) will leave at the end of the season," Sandro, who has been linked with a transfer to Sao Paulo, said. "Then, new coach, new everything."
