Harry Redknapp feels that the constant trouble Ledley King is having with his hamstrings is down to his lack of training.
King was forced off with another hamstring complaint in the weekend’s victory over Sunderland and Redknapp is concerned by the frequency that he is picking up these strains.
King has a chronic knee problem that has stopped him from playing two matches inside a week.
He has recently learned to manage the injury, resting almost entirely between matches in order to be fit for weekend matches.
He doesn’t train with the team, but trains on his own as and when he can, usually through swimming.
But Redknapp has noticed that not being able to train properly can lead to other minor injuries cropping up.
“He felt his hamstring a bit.
“Obviously with not training, it’s a concern. That’s what happens when you don’t train – you do start to get a few twinges in games. It’s a bit of a problem.”
