Ledley relishing friendly feast

Posted on 28 June 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Ledley King says he's looking forward to pitting his wits against two of Europe's top sides in our friendly feast in August.

Scottish champions Celtic arrive at the Lane on Wednesday August 7 (8pm) followed by Italian giants Lazio on Sunday August 11 (3pm).

Defender Ledley said: "We want to test ourselves against these type of quality European sides and if we are aiming for Europe, teams of this calibre are the ones we want to be up against.

"Celtic have done very well in Scotland recently, it will be interesting to test ourselves against them with players such as Henrik Larsson and Chris Sutton in the side.

"Obviously Lazio are another quality team. I’m a great admirer of the Italian League and often watch their matches with interest, so it will be great to be playing against one of Serie A’s top sides.

"Lazio had quite a few players at the World Cup - the likes of Crespo, Simeone, Nesta and Mendieta — top class players who will provide tough opposition.

"Both matches should be very entertaining for the fans, these are the kind of games they want to be watching at White Hart Lane and I’m sure they will be great for them to watch and great for the players to be involved in."
