Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed Sandro will be out until early 2015 but admits the prognosis could’ve been a lot worse and the player is "lucky" his knee ligament damage was not worse.
Sandro collided with team-mate Yun Suk-Young early during the second half loss to Newcastle last weekend and the club feared the worse for the player who has been blighted by injury over the past 18 months. However a scan earlier this week confirmed the extent damage was only to the medial ligament and not the anterior cruciate as feared. His absence could pave the way for Jordon Mutch to return to the starting eleven having recovered from a recent hamstring problem – Rio Ferdinand is available again following his three game suspension while Adel Taarabt is still "way off fitness."

Queens Park Rangers are not only losing points but players as well with midfielder Sandro adding his name to the ever-growing list of first team squad members currently unavailable.

The talented acquisition signed during the close season has the potential to play at the very highest level but keeping Sandro fit is becoming a near impossible task after a groin injury forced his early withdrawal on Sunday – the latest in a long line of niggling problems [calf / knee / hip]. Redknapp bought wisely in the summer and with a limited budget he needed his big money buys to hit the ground running but injury is threatening to derail his season. The QPR coach has seen the likes of Jordon Mutch [hamstring] and Leroy Fer struggle to maintain fitness as well as influential skipper Joey Barton. In addition consider Kranjcar [toe], Green [tonsillitis], Onuoha [hamstring] as well as long-term victims Faurlin and Jenas [both ACL] and it’s easy to see why Redknapp is already facing an uphill task to keep his side in the division.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sandro has suffered a fresh knee injury after sliding on his knees while celebrating a goal in training.

Sandro has a history of knee injuries that have ruled him out for long periods, and manager Harry Redknapp is furious with how the latest problem came about. "It was a stupid injury," said Redknapp. "He scored a goal in training and slid on his knee like a lot of players do. I don’t know why players do it. The pitch was bone dry so he skidded. His knee has gone bang into the turf." The injury kept Sandro out of the draw with Stoke in Week 5 and the midfielder is unlikely to be fit to face Southampton this weekend.

Queens Park Rangers added a key figure to their first team with the signing of Sandro on a three year deal, handing over £10million to Tottenham Hotspur for the transfer fee.

The Beast will be now be unleashed at Loftus Road, where he immediately upgrades the Rangers' midfield. He reunites with Harry Redknapp, who took the talented Brazilian under his wing when he broke into the Premier League in 2010. Sandro hasn't had a history of offering much in terms of fantasy appeal, but he will provide a presence in the middle that will open things up for other attacking-minded Rangers and their value looks to be on the upswing.

Midfielder Sandro believes the arrival of a possible new manager in the summer could reignite his Tottenham career.

Sandro and current boss Tim Sherwood have had a big falling out over the past few weeks, with both men making it clear how they feel. The Brazilian midfielder had tweeted a message after he was dropped from the Tottenham squad in April, which prompted Sherwood to label the player "not up to it at the moment ahead of other people". Sandro had been linked to a move to Sao Paulo this summer, but recent quotes suggest he is waiting for Sherwood's departure to reignite his Spurs career. "He (Sherwood) will leave at the end of the season," Sandro is quoted as saying to ESPN Brazil. "Then, new coach, new everything."

Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood has numerous injury problems ahead of the clash with West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

Midfielder Sandro was expected to be involved this weekend, but he's picked up a an injury in training, and Roberto Soldado has failed to fully recover from his hamstring problem. Mousa Dembele is also unlikely to feature while Jan Vertonghen, Michael Dawson, Kyle Walker, Etienne Capoue and Erik Lamela all remain sidelined. Harry Kane could be set for another start alongside Emmanuel Adebayor after an impressive performance against Sunderland.
