Tottenham suffered second-half blackout, says Younes Kaboul
Younes Kaboul reckons Tottenham Hotspure are lacking personality
Younes Kaboul believes Tottenham Hotspur suffered a second-half “blackout” after a shock 2-1 loss to Newcastle United on Sunday.
Spurs took an early lead at White Hart Lane as Emmanuel Adebayor scored his second goal of the Premier League season.
Do we need more personality in the squad? Maybe, yes
However, Newcastle forward Sammy Ameobi levelled six seconds into the second half before Ayoze Perez netted a winner with 32 minutes remaining.
And Tottenham captain Kaboul feels Mauricio Pochettino’s side is lacking personality after their poor league run continued.
“After the equaliser we looked defeated on the pitch,” Kaboul said.
“Newcastle saw that and they thought, “Yeah, why not? We’re going to win this game”. And they did it.
“Do we need more personality in the squad? Maybe, yes.”
“At the start of the second half it was blackout,” Kaboul added.
“We came back on to the pitch not thinking, missed the pass and Sammy Ameobi went through and scored.”
Tottenham are in 11th place in the Premier League table after their third loss of the season.
