Tottenham defender Kaboul delighted with matchwinning derby goal

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul was delighted with his winner at Arsenal.

Kaboul could not have picked a better time to score the first goal of his second spell at Spurs.

"This goal is very special because it is against Arsenal," the Frenchman beamed.

"You only remember the winners; that is what we did and we are all happy."

No one more so than William Gallas, who had the last laugh on his return to Arsenal after being jeered throughout and snubbed during the pre-match handshake by former team-mate Samir Nasri.

Kaboul said: "William is an experienced player: he is very clever, very intelligent.

"It is normal in football that the other fans will boo him, but going over that, those people are cheap - they do not remember well what William did for Arsenal before.

"They should respect him for that. William won and that was the answer."
