Ledley's raring to go

Posted on 21 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 reports from our La Manga training camp that he is fit and raring to go for next season.

Our stylish defender suffered a disappointing end to an outstanding 2001-02 campaign when an Achilles problem forced him out of the last six weeks of the season.

That ended any lingering hopes of making England's World Cup squad and he had to withdraw from the Under-21 European Championships in May.

But Ledley is now back in full training with the squad in La Manga and reporting no ill effects from the Achilles.

"Everything is fine at the moment," said Ledley, in the shortlist for the PFA Young Player award last term. "I've been doing all the training with everyone else and there's nothing I haven't been able to do.

"We've been doing some ball work out here as well and I've had no problems there.

"The rest at the end of the season seems to have done the trick. I've been in a few days in the summer as well and touch wood it will be fine. I've had no problems."

Ledley insisted that the hard work in Spain will bare fruit at the start of the season.

"We've started most mornings with a run at 6 o'clock," he revealed. "We've had three sessions most days as well and it's been hard, especially in the heat out here. It must be in the high-80s but it feels like the 100s!

"It will certainly help me. I missed a few weeks at the end of last season and I'm sure we'll come back for the start of pre-season a lot stronger for it."
