Just a start

Reflecting on our League Cup triumph at Wembley last season, skipper Ledley King revealed that the attitude in dressing room immediately after lifting the trophy was ‘we want more of this'.

Our longest serving player, Ledley was outstanding alongside Jonathan Woodgate in central defence on that memorable day in February as we came from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1 after extra time and secure our first trophy since 1999 - Ledley's debut season.

Emotions ran high as Ledley climbed the famous steps at Wembley to receive the trophy with vice-captain Robbie Keane.

Despite all that, however, Ledley insists the collective eyes of the squad were focused on more success.

"You just try to enjoy the moment," said Ledley, asked for his thoughts as he went to lift the trophy. "At the same time, I didn't try to get too carried away.

"It was a great day and it's okay winning one trophy, but we have to go and do it time and again.

"There were a lot of players who were experiencing their first final, let alone winning a first trophy. As soon as the whistle went and we won, the players were all saying ‘it's an amazing feeling, we want it again, we want to be winners'.

"We all want to get used to being at Wembley in cup finals and having beaten a team like Chelsea, we all believe we can."

Look out for more from Ledley next week both on the website and Spurs TV Online...
