Kaboul And Gallas

New Tottenham Hotspur captain Younes Kaboul will not feature against Partizan Belgrade.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed several key players have not travelled to Serbia for Thursday night's Europa League game.

Among them is Younes Kaboul, a surprise choice as club captain when the decision was announced on Monday.

Emmanuel Adebayor, Mousa Dembele, Danny Rose and Nacer Chadli also miss out.

It is not thought at this point there are any major injury concerns among the quintet, but the decision has been made to rest them as the Argentine manager rotates his squad.
