Redknapp concerned by King injuries


Ledley King - Header

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.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. You cannot train like Ledley he should do what i have done for years and strap is knee up has tight has he can.I used seller tape and crape bandage and work the big thigh muscles for twenty minuets then cut the seller tape and bandage of and keep doing this till is Hamstrings and leg muscles are strong .The sad thing is he will end up in a lot of pain and he will need a plastic knee if he keeps playing i had a plastic hip at 34 years of age. One other point My Daughter has helped me for years with Aroma Therapy this will help with the swelling and is better than cortisone and anti inflammatory drugs. I wish him all the Best and Hope he makes the right decision for himself and Spurs and thank god he had is career to look back on mine sadly was stopped by my spine disease from the age of 16 and with my way of working out on my own multi gym in my shed have lived with and managed pain for most of my life .Good Luck King amongst defenders
