Kaboul out of Euros

Tue, 15 May 19:45:07 2012

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul will miss out on a place in France's Euro 2012 squad due to injury, coach Laurent Blanc has revealed.

Kaboul suffered a recurrence of an old knee problem in Sunday's Barclays Premier League win against Fulham and follows Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna - who suffered a broken leg against Norwich earlier this month - in being ruled out of Blanc's preliminary selection.

"He suffers from a quite serious knee injury. He is out of the Euros," Blanc told Eurosport in a live broadcast to announce his provisional 26-man squad for next month's tournament in Ukraine and Poland.
