Tottenham get injury boost ahead of City game

Younes Kaboul, Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs defender Younes Kaboul could return from injury in time for the clash with Manchester City on Sunday.

The France ace has been out for the entire season, bar a few minutes, and underwent surgery on his knee last August but he played for the development side last week against West Ham and is now set for another run out.

Kaboul returned to training last week and is set for a 90 minute outing on Monday afternoon, and if he comes through that without any problems then he could be in line for a place in the squad on Sunday.

William Gallas is a doubt for the City clash so Kaboul’s return would be a timely one but the boss is unlikely to risk him if there is any doubt about his fitness.

Spurs U21 coach Chris Ramsey was delighted with Kaboul’s performance against West Ham, “He did well, had no problems really,” Ramsey told Sky.

“He wanted to play an extra 15 minutes as well, showed a fantastic attitude and wanted to push his fitness a little more.

“Overall, when you look at the fact that a player like Younes returns to action after eight months out and the experience the younger lads gain playing alongside him, it’s another great exercise for us.”
