Pascal attracted attention from a host of clubs after his debut season for Wigan in the Premier League. Such were the full back’s performances he was the right back in PFA Team of the Year, voted for by fellow professionals. Tottenham managed to sign the right back in July 2006, after he travelled to the World Cup with France.
The French international immediately showed why Jol showed so much patience in purchasing him, representing the club 98 times and scoring 4 goals, he proved a valuable asset. The versatile defender appeared unwanted by Ramos, as the Spaniard brought in 2 more full back in Alan Hutton and Chris Gunter.
In the summer of 2008 Chimbonda left for Sunderland, appearing 13 times before returning to the Lane under Harry Redknapp. He featured in 5 games before the end of the season where he left again, this time to Blackburn Rovers.
