Kaboul insists Spurs boss Sherwood wrong to doubt players' character

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul says manager Tim Sherwood is wrong to question their character.

Kaboul was speaking after their Europa League defeat to Benfica.

Asked if Sherwood was right in saying the team lacked character, the defender replied: "Not at all. It's not because we've lost two games in a row. We've got a big squad with big qualities.

"We need to work a bit harder.

"When we scored the goal it gave us a push. We tried. The other goal killed us. It was too late.

"In football anything is possible. We're going there to win."
