TOTTENHAM’S travelling support weren’t treated to a vintage performance in Milan last night.

But they did have the pleasure of being joined in the away end by a club cult hero.

Last time Spurs won at AC Milan in the Champions League, Brazilian star Sandro lined up in Harry Redknapp’s midfield.

And last night he was in among the supporters cheering on his old team.

The 33-year-old remains a popular figure among Spurs fans, having won them over with his committed displays and eccentric personality.

Last night he endeared himself to them even further… by taking a pop at hated rivals Arsenal.

Asked by a supporter what he thinks of the Gunners, Sandro replied: “S***!”

Then quizzed what he thinks is “s***”, he responded “Arsenal!”

His answers prompted cheers from fans – with Sandro laughing and smiling as he put his arm around the Spurs fan.

Tottenham subsequently fell to a 1-0 defeat to AC Milan, but will still feel in the tie ahead of the second leg on March 8.

Sandro made 106 appearances for Spurs after joining from Brazilian side Internacional in 2010.

He produced outstanding displays for the Lilywhites, before being thwarted by a serious knee injury.

The 17-cap Brazil international subsequently joined QPR in 2014, but only managed 36 appearances for the West London outfit in three years.

During this time he played 13 times on loan at West Brom, before signing for Turkish club Antalyaspor in 2018.

He later went on to play for Genoa, Udinese, Goias and Belenenses.
