Apparently he underwent surgery yest, they weren't disclosing recovery time at that stage.
However, I don't consider Sandro in the holding role full strength; my ideal line up would be Parker (I know, when he joined us I never dreamt I'd say that) in the holding, Bale & Lennon on the wings, & Dembele/a.n.other (for me ideally a VDV/Modric, but that's getting trapped in the past). Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't dream of losing Sandro, and would like to experiment with playing wing backs (I reckon Walker and Bale would do well in that role), with 2-3 CBs and 2 DMs (Sandro & Parker), but ideally I wouldn't choose Sandro over Parker.
I read later that he may be out til the end of the season. Bit of a bugger.
Luckily, Mr Levy didn't have a complete purge during the summer and Scottie is still with us. Maybe he'll get a few more early minutes than expected given his Achilles surgery. I doubt whether AVB will let Livermore go on loan either.
