Tottenham assistant manager Steffen Freund says defender Younes Kaboul may not be fit until the end of February.
The French international has not played a competitive game this season for Spurs after injuring his knee in pre-season. Many Spurs fans had viewed Kaboul as their first-choice central defender for this season but it looks like we will have to wait a little longer to see him in the heart of the defence again.
We now face a six-week wait for Kaboul to get to the right level of fitness to force his way back into AVB’s starting line-up.
“He’s on a six-week programme from the medical staff and starting to work now with the fitness coaches,” Freund told a press conference.
“It’s difficult to say now which game he will be back but hopefully mid- or end of February.”
“He’s a really important part of Tottenham,” continued Freund.
“He has a lot of leadership qualities and we are waiting to have him back as quickly as possible.
“He is frustrated. He likes to be involved – especially when you are successful.
