Sandro insists that Tottenham’s squad are fully united behind Andre Villas-Boas after Sunday’s draw with Manchester United.

The north Londoners were twice pegged back by Wayne Rooney goals at White Hart Lane after Kyle Walker and Sandro had given the home side the lead.

The draw came after Spurs had suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats, including a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City.

And despite Tottenham now trailing leaders Arsenal by 10 points, Sandro feels that Spurs have proved that they are fully behind Villas-Boas, whose position had come under scrutiny after the heavy loss at The Etihad.

Asked whether the defeat by City had unified the squad, Sandro told the London Evening Standard: “Of course. As a team we have to stay together in the bad moments and I think we did that. Everyone stayed together, talked and it was good.

“Everyone likes him [Villas-Boas], we have to play for him and everyone is doing that on the pitch.

“It [criticism] happens to any coach if you do not win games. He knows we are here and we showed him what we are going to do [for him] yesterday. I play for him every game and I think everyone was amazing yesterday.”
