Tottenham Crock Ledley King Is Slowly Falling To Bits

By Chris Wright

Tottenham defender Ledley King is to visit a specialist in Denmark to ascertain whether or not he will need to undergo surgery on the troublesome groin injury that has kept him out for the past six weeks.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp told the PA:

“Ledley’s off to see a specialist in Copenhagen to get a decision on what needs doing next, as to whether he feels he can carry on strengthening and trying to get through without having surgery or whether he needs surgery.”

“The knee can’t improve; there’s nothing you can do with the knee. That’s how it’s going to be for the rest of his career.”

The strain, which has restricted King to just seven appearances this season, is thought to have developed as a result of the 30-year-old centre-back’s inability to train regularly (due to his rubbish knees), though it may also be due to having tendons and ligaments that are seemingly made from a compound of plasticine and warm chocolate.

Seriously, regardless of quality, how is this guy still a pro? Surely he’s worth more in scrap these days?

    Steve Austin was rebuilt with nuclear powered limbs and implants way back in 1974, i don’t see why, in this day and age we can’t do the same with ledley!!

    He is a really good player, 3rd choice England CB no doubt but I do wish he stayed fit..

  5. Soccer Mom says:

    Don’t expect much resale value for King, if he comes good in the final stretch of the season, Redknapp will be a happy man..

    Dawson is back in training now, so that’s good news.
    he’s expected to be back in 3 weeks

  7. S-League Player says:

    Unbelievable how Spurs is home to 2 of the best CBs in the country but for their injuries: King and Woodgate. That’s the best England CB pairing for me IF they are ever fit enough. Sadly, we’ll never know it seems.
