Play Your Cards Right - Ledley King

Posted on 26 August 2003  - 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 is next around the card table for our new question and answer feature 'Play Your Cards Right'.

It's a new, personal feature for the players who will be asked to draw 10 cards - all with a question on them - from a full deck.


What is your favourite film?

What do you remember about your school days?
Playing football in the playground. We used to make a big thing of it. I went to a school in Poplar and had a lot of good days there.

What would you wear to a fancy dress party?
Not my cup of tea. I'd go quite basic - perhaps a Batman outfit!

Who is the best player of all time?
I'd go for Pele.

What is your favourite restaurant?
I haven't got one really. I like spicy food and tend to go all over the place.

What's it like being recognised?
You get used to it. It's nice, nice to be appreciated. I don't mind really.

What is your favourite cheese?
I haven't got one really.

Do professional footballers earn too much?
I wouldn't say so. There are plenty of other sports that pay more, like basketball, American football. There are other aspects like how long we can play for, injuries, so it's good we can earn good money while we can.

What is the best pair of trainers ever?
I've got plenty of Stan Smiths by adidas but when I was young I had a pair of Nike Air Hirachi - they are back in now. At the time, I was delighted to get them.

Do you go food shopping?
My girlfriend does most, but I chip in as well.
