Younes Kaboul played for an hour in Tottenham’s under 21 league clash with West Ham at Upton Park last night. The 27 year old French International was playing his first competitive game since the very start of the season and reports suggest that he has come through unscathed after playing his part in the 1-1 draw.
Those reports go on to suggest that Kaboul will be available when the club returns to league action later this month. Spurs are playing Manchester City on April the 21st and the centre half may well be ready for a bench role at the very least.
So Younes is back but will AVB have the need to rush the defender straight back into the side? Is there enough of a concern at the heart of the defence that he needs to take up his usual position straight away? Alternatively, is there a case for Kaboul replacing Kyle Walker on the right when City come to the Lane in two weeks’ time?
