Terry: Ledley's all gold

Posted on 5 October 2001  - 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).

Chelsea defender John Terry has described Ledley King as the footballer ‘who has got everything’.

The Stamford Bridge prospect lavished praise on his former junior team-mate ahead Friday evening's crucial England Under-21 international against Greece at Blackburn Rovers' Ewood Park.

Victory will book David Platt’s boys a place in the play-offs for next summer’s European Championship Finals — all nine group winners and seven best runners-up go into eight play-offs for a right to play in the finals.

Ledley is expected to start but his regular defensive partner and captain Terry is missing through suspension.

Neverthless, Terry declared: “I used to play Sunday football with him at Senrab. Even then people would rant and rave about him.

“Well he’s in the Premiership now up against some of the best players in the world and still he looks brilliant.

“He’s two footed, great in the air, he’s quick, he’s got everything and I’m sure it won’t be long before he gets a full call up.

“Ledley’s brilliant to play alongside. He’s talkative, helps you out, if the ball goes over you, you know he’ll be there to mop up. He’s an all-rounder and he’s got everything, he really has.

“He’s very modest, a cool, calm customer and a lovely lad off the pitch as well. On the pitch he’s letting his feet do the talking.”
