Redknapp likens new man Sandro to Socrates

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp says there are many similarities between Sandro and Brazilian legend Socrates - and hopes that is replicated on the pitch.

Spurs squad get Carling chance.

• Van der Vaart: Spurs the bigger club
• Forum: Biggest club in North London?

Sandro, now part of the Spurs squad after arriving at the club from Internacional following their Copa Libertadores success last month, is set to make his first appearance for the club in Tuesday night's Carling Cup clash against Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp explained: "He looks like Socrates. He runs like him. If he can play like him we'll be all right. He does have that funny running action. There were two top Spanish clubs in for him. I couldn't get to Brazil with us being in the situation last year where we were trying to finish in the top four. So (chief scout) Ian (Broomfield) went over.

"We spoke to people in Brazil, we spoke to (former Brazil manager)Dunga and they all said: 'You've got a real good one there'. Ian saw him four times and he had no doubts. He raved about him. You don't get into the Brazilian national squad if you're a mug, do you?''

"He's not a Robinho. He's a big lad, he gets around the pitch, he can tackle, he can pass it and play. He's a box to box midfield player. Maybe an Abou Diaby-type from Arsenal. A big rangy type of player. A Patrick Vieira-type player perhaps. He's totally dedicated to his football. He's not going to go off Samba dancing anywhere.''

Tottenham, like Arsenal, are set to rest most of their first team players in the tie and will hand several young players their chance. Jake Livermore, 21, and, if fit, 18-year-old Steven Caulker after both set to play in the North London derby. David Bentley and third choice goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa will also play.

Redknapp denies that by playing youngsters and reserves he is disrespecting the tournament. "If we weren't in Europe, I would have a real go to win the Carling Cup,'' he explained.
