Younes Kaboul has issued an apology to the Tottenham Hotspur fans and players after his red card against Newcastle United.
The French defender was shown a straight red card by referee Anthony Taylor for coming head-to-head with Cheik Tiote.
Kaboul told the official site: â€œI received what I felt was a bad tackle from the player and thatâ€™s why I reacted the way I did.
â€œI know I should not do this and itâ€™s not in my nature.
â€œI apologise to my team and would like to say sorry to the fans and I hope we will not see that on the pitch again.â€
He added: â€œWe showed very good character. It was a hard game and at half-time it was 0-0.
â€œWe wanted to score early in the second half and take control of the game and thatâ€™s what we did. The most important thing was to take the three points.â€
