Tottenham's U21 coach Chris Ramsey heaped praise on Younes Kaboul after he returned to action on Monday.
The French defender has been sidelined since the opening day of the season when he re-injured his knee but managed to get through 60 minutes of Spurs' U21 sides 1-1 draw with West Ham United and Ramsey was thrilled with his impact as well as the performance by young midfielder Tom Carroll.
"He did well, had no problems really. He wanted to play an extra 15 minutes as well, showed a fantastic attitude and wanted to push his fitness a little more," Ramsey told Sky Sports.
"Tom Carroll showed a great attitude as well, as he always does. All the senior professionals have set an example when they've come into the squad.
"Overall, when you look at the fact that a player like Younes returns to action after eight months out and the experience the younger lads gain playing alongside him, it's another great exercise for us."
