Tottenham's Kaboul targets World Cup place
Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul has told Sky Sports that he is eyeing a place in the France World Cup squad.
The 27-year-old centre-back has had an irritating time of late having missed out on plenty of first team football through injury, as well as France’s Euro 2012 campaign.
Kaboul picked up a knee injury on the final game of the 2011-12 season whilst playing under Harry Redknapp and the timing of the injury meant that he was forced to sit out of Euro 2012. However he is now looking to the future and believes that it is not too late for him to claim his spot in the Les Bleu squad. “My knee is fine and once I get back to my best level, getting into the French team will be my main objective.”
The formidable defender has impressed since his 2007 arrival at White Hart Lane. After a year with the club he was sold on to Portsmouth, but following a two year stint on the south coast Kaboul was brought back to Spurs by Harry Redknapp in 2010. Despite his injury hit time in a Tottenham shirt Kaboul has made 65 appearances for the club in this second spell alone.
