Spurs boss Jol delighted with Kaboul impact

Tottenham boss Martin Jol is delighted with the way new signing Younes Kaboul has settled so quickly.

After victory over Torino, Jol told the Tottenham website: "We've done unbelievably well in friendlies and it's a habit you want - not losing games.

"I thought we were 100 per cent better than them and we didn't give away a lot either, so that was good.

"We still have to fine tune a couple of things and we will do that.

"I was pleased because I could bring all the substitutes on in the second half, the crowd could see for instance what Adel Taarabt could do and he's just 18.

"I was also pleased with Younes Kaboul and Ricardo Rocha, who can play right-back, left-back or in the centre, that's a fine situation for a manager.

"The players know they have to fight for their places, there are no comfort zones and that's what we want."
