Kaboul happy to be a Spurs starter


Younes Kaboul

Younes Kaboul admits he’s glad to be back playing football after his recent injury absence.

Kaboul returned to the Tottenham defence to partner William Gallas for the 1-1 draw with Everton after missing over a month out with a hamstring problem.

The former Pompey player impressed upon his return to Harry Redknapp’s side and will be looking to cement his place as a regular starter in defence.

“I was very happy to start the game, even though it was a bit difficult because I hadn’t played for a month,” Kaboul told the club’s official website.

“I thought we did well defensively but we couldn’t win. I thought 1-1 was a fair scoreline and now we have to concentrate and focus on the next game.

“They scored a great goal and we’re lucky because we came back straight afterwards. That was important.

“We didn’t doubt ourselves. We perhaps could have scored a second goal in the second half but we didn’t and as I said, 1-1 was a fair result.”
