Over the next few weeks we’ll have a look at the players that remain in the Spurs squad for 2011-12 and ask what kind of impact they are likely to have at the club this season.
In the case of Younes Kaboul, this promises to be an interesting campaign and one in which he can cement a first team place and make himself Harry’s first choice centre back to partner Michael Dawson.
As we all know, Kaboul first joined the club in 2007 before leaving to play under Harry at Portsmouth a year later. On his return in 2010 he took a while to settle in but last year seemed to mature and show some real quality. He also showed the ability to find the net and who will forget his winner at the Emirates?
Younes also won his first national cap and while there were rumours of a return to France, he never looked likely to be sold.
As for this season, there are still rumours of a move for Gary Cahill but what can we expect from Kaboul in 2011-12? He can cover at right back but with the emergence of Kyle Walker that may not be so important. We all know of Gallas and King’s injury issues but when they are fit should they walk into the side ahead of Kaboul?
Overall, will 2011-12 be a hit or miss for Younes?
