Ledley King has reportedly been given the decision to choose between representing Tottenham in the league or in Europe this season.
King has a well-documented knee problem that restricts him from playing two games in a week, meaning it would be difficult for him to manage both campaigns.
Redknapp has admitted his star defender will have to be used sparingly, but will use him if his fitness is up to scratch.
“The truth is Ledley is such a good player for us.
“Hopefully he’ll play every week in the league or in Europe. I might bring a defender in, but we need Ledley fit; he’s that good.
“He’s our most outstanding player and there’s no way we can be without him.”
The Spurs boss has hinted that King may be saved to help Tottenham’s maiden Champions League campaign.
“he will be massive for us in Europe. He’s going to be a big player. He’s as good as any centre-half in the country.”
With Spurs unlikely to mount a serious challenge to win the Champions League, I would personally save King for league fixtures, so we might have another crack at Europe’s premier competition next season.
