Former Tottenham captain Ledley King wants to resurrect his coaching career with the club next year.
King retired four years ago due to a persistent knee injury and worked briefly with Spurs’ under-18s in 2014.
The 36-year-old took a break due it being too much too soon but now plans to approach the club’s head of coaching and development John McDermott about a fresh coaching role.
“It’s something I will get back into, hopefully going into next season,” King told Press Association Sport.
“I’m lucky to have the club here so it’ll be a case of speaking to the right people, John McDermott maybe, who helped me start it up, and getting it back on track.
“I need to give it a good go and see if I’m any good. I started my badges and then stopped them. I was working two days a week with the under-18s here.
“Everyone asks players if they want to go into coaching and expect them to be the next best thing in management. I don’t know what I’d be like.
“It’ll be a learning process for me. It’s like starting all over again. First I have to be good at what I do. If I feel I can be good then I can step by step start thinking about future roles.”
