Younes Kaboul has endured injury hell over the past 18 months, but the Tottenham defender is now determined to force his way back into the side.
The French defender injured his knee away to Newcastle in AVB’s first game in charge of Spurs and has worked hard to get back to fitness alongside the Beast, Sandro who also suffered a knee injury in January at QPR.
In an interview with the Independent, Kaboul said: “We worked together, we shared a lot. I was happy because I was not alone.”
In April, Kaboul returned to Spurs’ Under-21 side, only to pick up a thigh injury. His season was over.
“I knew, as soon as I had this [knee] injury, that this would happen one day, because when you’re coming back from injury you always have something else coming, with muscles, so I was not very surprised but I was gutted also because I was nearly there to be fully fit.”
Sadly a slight knock has ruled Kaboul out of facing West Ham United today, all Spurs fans hold Kaboul in high regard with many expecting him to forge a long-term partnership with Jan Vertonghen.
Hopefully the worst of his injury hell is over and we can get back to see him commanding his defence once more.
