Ledley King one-kneed spurs legend

Ledley King

We caught up with former Tottenham Hotspur captain Ledley King, who in retirement works as a club ambassador.

Fans still sing your name at White Hart Lane, albeit referencing your injury, but how far has a fan gone to show their affection for you?
“There have been a few nice things, like people being given middle names or naming their dogs [Ledley]... which I think is a compliment!”

Harry Redknapp described you as a freak for your ability to play without training, but what’s the best compliment you’ve had from a pro?
“Edgar Davids said something that really stood out for me [‘Left and right foot perfect, fast, almost never made a foul. Technically, he is so gifted’]  It was really nice to hear, because you just have to think about the players he has played with and the teams Edgar has been involved in.”

 Tottenham have created their own interactive children’s game, Turfies. Was a young Ledley into video games?
 “I always played computer games when I was a kid, but they took a bit longer to load back then. With Turfies, kids can swap things like cards with their friends virtually.”

What about swapping stickers – did you complete any albums?
“Yeah, football stickers were a big part of growing up – and they still are popular with kids, I think.
I managed to finish a few albums.”

Who did you pretend to be on the playground when you were growing up?
“Depends on what was working at the time. Sometimes it was Paul Gascoigne or John Barnes – and I
was also Ronaldo, the Brazilian one, when I was a bit older. They were always attacking players.”

Sport is looking for an extra player for its five-a-side team. Interested?
“If I could still play five-a-side, then I’d probably still be playing some football. But I haven’t kicked a ball for a while. If that changes, then I’ll let you know.”
