Kaboul future in doubt!

Posted on July 08, 2013 by Eddie S

Let’s hope not, the report certainly doesn’t make a great deal of sense as it firstly suggests that he might not be the player he was prior to his injury, then links him with Real Madrid, Chelsea and PSG, and then goes on to suggest that his value is only something like £5m. This is a player just approaching his peak being just 27yrs old and so that seems very generous for any club looking to buy a French international defender.

It is true that he only has a year left on his contract but it seems probable that just as soon as he has proven his fitness he will be given that new improved deal. Tottenham are looking to propel themselves into the big league and so will need top quality players to do so, Kaboul is such a player and will almost certainly again become the first choice central defender operating to the right of Jan Vertonghen, he is as good as Dawson in the air, is stronger and far faster and so will complement the high line that AVB favours.

In the article questioning his ability it also goes on to suggest that the likes of PSG, because Blanc made him first choice for France, Real Madrid and Chelsea will all look to acquire his services, not a bad bunch of suitors for a player supposedly in decline.

Caulker and Vertonghen are not direct competitors for his position, as the article suggests, as both prefer to operate on the left of any defensive duo and so he will compete with Michael Dawson, a battle he has won on many occasions hence AVB was prepared to sell Dawson last summer before Kaboul’s injury in the first game of the season, for which he was chosen it should be remembered.

In his last full season for Tottenham his stats were only a little behind Vincent Kompany who captained City to the title that year, provided he now manages to regain his fitness there is little doubt in my mind that he will form the most formidable partnership with Vertonghen this coming season and the pair will almost certainly be the chosen duo for all the major fixtures.
