Tottenham boss Redknapp heaps praise on Kaboul

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has hailed the impact of Younes Kaboul this season.

Kaboul was one of the few players to emerge from Friday night's narrow FA Cup win over Watford with any credit and Redknapp showered huge praise on the powerful centre-back.

"Kaboul has been absolutely terrific. That's why I signed him twice," Redknapp said.

"He didn't have the best time when he was here the first time but he was only a young boy then.

"I took him to Portsmouth. He was terrific there and that's why I really wanted him back.

"He showed last night exactly what qualities he has got. He is terrific defensively. I haven't really had to work on him, it's more about making him believe in himself.

"I have signed him twice, that shows how much confidence I have in him. He has been a terrific influence for us."
