Same again, please!

Ledley King is hoping for a repeat of last year's Carling Cup Final success when we meet Manchester United at Wembley on Sunday.

The Club captain played an influential role in the victory over Chelsea when we overcame the odds to beat our London rivals 2-1 and the defender is looking for more of the same this time out.

"The first thing I did when the whistle went was to run up to anyone in a white shirt and hug them," he said, reflecting on the moment Spurs were crowned winners. "I think it was 'Woody' who was closest to me at the time. Then we all came together and celebrated. It was an amazing feeling and all the players want to feel that again this year."

King featured in the whole 120 minutes of the 2007 Final after Dimitar Berbatov cancelled out Didier Drogba's opener to force the game into extra-time.

"It was tough," he remembered. "There were questions in my own head going into extra-time. I cramped up a couple of times, but I wasn't going to let that stop me. With the rest of the lads digging in so deep, it spurred me on, too. We all pulled each other through. All I knew was that we had a goal to defend and I was determined to keep going."

You can read more of this interview, and others including Harry Redknapp, Luka Modric, Teddy Sheringham and celebrity Spurs fan Mathew Horne, in this season's Carling Cup Final programme.
