Redknapp angry over Sandro injury

Cape Town - Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has bemoaned Sandro's "stupid injury" which the midfielder sustained in a training ground celebration.

The £10 million off-season signing now faces an anxious wait to learn the full extent of the injury, but will almost certainly miss Saturday's crunch clash with high-flying Southampton.

And having suffered from serious knee injuries in the past, Redknapp has lambasted the Brazil international for his unnecessary celebration.

"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 and I watched him trying to get up wondering 'what's he done here?' Sure enough, he wasn't fit for Saturday.

"I couldn't believe it. He had a knee operation at Tottenham last year which kept him out for quite a while.

"It was a setback for us and I wouldn't recommend anyone sliding on their knees. It's absolutely crazy."

Queens Park Rangers travel, without Sandro, to St. Mary's Stadium to tackle Southampton on Saturday, September 27 at 16:00.
