Spurs keeper Cerny raps error-prone Kaboul

Tottenham goalkeeper Radek Cerny has criticised teammate Younes Kaboul for his error-prone season.

France Under-21 international captain Kaboul made the mistake which gifted West Ham a goal in the 1-1 draw at Upton Park and then gifted Birmingham a soft penalty in last Sunday's 3-2 defeat at White Hart Lane.

Cerny believes Kaboul has the ability to enjoy a long future with Spurs but has warned he has to erase the lack of concentration in his game which is putting his team-mates under pressure.

"Younes made a big mistake against Birmingham and it makes it difficult for us - we need not to make silly mistakes like this," Cerny told setantasports.com.

"It was a silly foul and a penalty. And in the last few games we have made big mistakes. Younes is having a difficult time at the moment. But when he arrived he was playing well.

"I hope he has the character to come back and be a success at Spurs, because we have some very good players here.

"I think there is a problem with the confidence, not just of Younes, but of the whole team. When we are a goal up we need to relax and control the game more.

"How many times have you seen us concede a goal in the last minute? It's these little things that all add up. We have lost maybe 18 points in the last five minutes this year - that's a lot of points. I just hope our luck will change."
