Kaboul’s post match reaction to Benfica defeat

Younes Kaboul is refusing to admit that Tottenham are all but out of the Europa League following the 3-1 defeat to Benfica at White Hart Lane.

It was another frustratingly lacklustre performance from Tim Sherwood’s side who lacked creativity, movement and any sort of game plan.  It was the first time we have lost to Portuguese opponents in any UEFA competition at the Lane.

We now face an uphill task in the return leg, but Kaboul who skippered Spurs in the defeat is not throwing in the towel.

“Everything is possible in football,” Kaboul said. “We will go there to win and see what happens.

“When we scored our goal we thought it gave us a bit of a push but we let one in straight away and then it was too late.

“We have to go for it next week.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. He is clearly deluded like the rest of them. Pull the curtains Put out the U21’s couldn’t pass a ball tonight. Forget expectations this is the worst season in a long long time.

  2. That was such a poor result, everyone expecting a good performance after the weekends abysmal effort. Kyle Naughton hasn’t got any positional awareness, no pace and no ability, why we started with Naughton when Danny Rose was on the bench only Tim Sherwood knows, he cost us the first goal. The second goal came from the inexperience of Harry Kane, how the hell can you start him in front of Soldado? another mistake from Tim Sherwood. As for Adebayor he is so lazy we have to get rid of him he is a total waste of space. Even Vertonghen looks like he can’t be bothered. Lloris is starting to look like a clown at times, instils absolutely no confidence in me what so ever. We needed Townsend on with 30 mins to go but never saw him, the substitutions Tim Sherwood made were poor at best. After putting myself through that for 90 mins I have no confidence that we will get anything from Sundays match, our season will be over if we do not beat Arsenal. That maybe the final nail in Tim Sherwood’s coffin.
