Burnley match was proof that Spurs must sell Younes Kaboul in January

White Hart Lane 5

Tottenham Hotspur's Younes Kaboul appeared to fall out with members of the squad on the pitch last night.

Tottenham Hotspur club captain Younes Kaboul has seen himself dislodged in the starting line-up due to the form of Federico Fazio in recent times, but his place in the first team may not be the only thing that he has lost. 

Kaboul was brought back into Spurs's line-up last night for their FA Cup match against Burnley, but he appeared to be fighting against his teammates throughout the contest and he seems to have lost the respect of the squad.

Michel Vorm and Jan Vertonghen were two players to visibly get in verbal disagreements with the Frenchman and it does not bode well for his future at White Hart Lane.

When Kaboul and Vertonghen were in a dispute, the Spurs fans were clear to indicate where their allegiances lie, with a rendition of "Super Jan" going round the stadium. 

And with Kaboul losing the confidence of not only his supporters, but his teammates too, his departure now appears likely. 

The 29-year-old has been linked with the likes of Besiktas by the Daily Mail in recent times and it may be best for all parties that he does move on. 

If Kaboul does leave this month it will give Mauricio Pochettino a chance to re-allocate the armband and the Argentine will be hoping to make a more informed choice this time around, having got to grips with the squad.
