Spurs can push for title in next two years says Ledley King


Former Tottenham defender Ledley King believes the club can challenge for the Premier League title within the next two years.

I love Ledley’s optimism and passion for the club but we really need to be finishing in the top four and qualifying for Champions League football next season if we are to attract some key world-class players who are capable of putting us in the frame for a title tilt.

We are without a shadow of a doubt short of a world-class striker and midfielder before we can even think of pushing for the Premier League and only Champions League football can lure the top players.

“I rate the current Spurs team very highly,” King told the BBC.

“I think we’ve got a young and ambitious manager who’s great and is going to do well for the club.

“I think we’ve got a great group of players at a good age where they’re improving all the time and reaching their peak.

“The way the team are progressing at the minute, hopefully in the next year or two they will be really challenging for the Premier League.”

“Hopefully this season we will finish in the Champions League places and then keep doing that,” King added.

“It’s a big club and you’ve got to make sure it’s not just a one-off, you’ve got to keep doing it.

“Hopefully we can qualify this season and continue doing that for the future.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Agreed. You have to love Ledley, his passion for the club is infectious but we don't have the squad for a title push. After this summer, with a couple of shrewd signings, I think we may have a first eleven of the required quality but we don't have enough quality in reserve as the last couple of weeks have shown.

  2. Don't know about that Rob. We keep sending the talent out on loan. Townsend should be filing in for Lennon if his hamstrings playing up, or be given a proper go out on the left, but no, he's off scoring worldies for QPR?!? What about giving Carroll more game time. What about seeing if Obika can actually make the grade. He's 23 FFS. Not exactly what I'd call youth anymore. Why we handicap ourselves with severely out of form strikers rather than give our youth more of a chance, I don't know. I'd prefer to see us fail to get fourth giving these talented kids a chance, than seeing us fail because our first 11 are too bloody tired to run after the ball after 60 minutes!
