Ledley King was delighted to come through his first match action unscathed after three months out with a broken foot.

The skipper returned with a 70-minute stint in the 1-0 friendly win against Nice at our training camp in France.

It was first time he’d pulled on the captain’s armband since a metatarsal fracture against Everton on April 15 – an injury that ended his Premiership season at a crucial stage and his dreams of playing in the World Cup this summer.

“It was nice to be back out there, to get some minutes under my belt and most importantly to get through the game with no problems,†reported Ledley. “That’s how it went.

“It’s been a long time especially over the summer watching all the games in the World Cup. It was great to be back and playing with the lads again.

“It was a disappointing end to the season both for me personally in terms of the injury and the team just missing out on fourth place. I then had the disappointment with England as well.

“All these things make you stronger and next season I’m determined to bounce back and enjoy another good season at Spurs.â€Â

Ledley may be involved again on Tuesday in the third and final friendly of the training camp against La Liga side Celta Vigo in Annecy. Kick-off is 7pm local time, 6pm UK.
