A section of Spurs fans may disagree but our French international central defender Younes Kaboul feels he is close to playing his best football after a lengthy period on the treatment table. He may currently be injury free if not entirely error free but the centre half clearly believes that he still has a future at White Hart Lane.
“When you are injured, you have to work by yourself and it is just a nightmare,” Younes said.
“Finally now I feel like I am coming back to my best. I’m not there yet, but I am trying. I wish we still had ten games left to play this season, but unfortunately we only have five left.
Looking ahead to the next campaign, the player added.
“I am feeling much better and I’m going to work again this summer to come back even better and have a good season next time.”
Those comments come after suggestions that he was going to run down his contract and leave Tottenham on a free. In turn, that sparked a host of rumours claiming that Kaboul was going to complete the full Sol Campbell process and join Arsenal – a story he has flatly denied.
So, Younes Kaboul seems committed to the club but is there a place for him in the 2014-15 campaign?
