Ledley King – What a man


Ledley King - Tottenham Hotspur Football News

Tottenham defender Ledley King does not believe it is time to hang up his boots just yet.

According to whispers, Ledley will be offered a new deal if he makes 20 appearances this term – he is currently on nine.

There is no doubt that Ledder’s has been a key part of our 10 match unbeaten run, he adds a lot more composure to our defence and Younes Kaboul really does benefit playing alongside the 31-year-old.

Despite his chronic knee problem and the fact he does not train at the same intensity as the rest of the lads – King is determined to carry on playing.

“I can play next season,” he said in the Daily Mail.

“Every player knows that their body will tell them when it’s time to pack it in. Mine isn’t, at the moment. There are a lot of games left in me.”

King will always have a place in the hearts of the Spurs faithful and based on his current form, he isn’t ready to hang up his boots.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Give him so new contact because even with one good leg he’s better than most with two. If you don’t believe me just look at the villa game. Never panics never flustered. Quality and calms the person playing along side him. Quality

  2. Top Man,
    Has anyone noticied how well dawson played alongside him, when he wasn't there dawson floundered, (dawson has matured now into a quality defender…
    The same with kaboul,
    when king plays he brings the best out of the player beside him, as he does with the whole team,
    worth his money, then when he does retire keep him at the club to coach. SIMPLE!!!
    As henry once said…..king is the best defender hes played against.
    WORLD CLASS springs to mind….

  3. How often does a prem player last over 10 years at a club from youth system up. Ledley is a rare find. Arguably the greatest prem defender. Who else can train for 30 mins a week and put in a rolls Royce performance? We should commemorate this spurs legend somehow
