Ledley in Sweden!
Club Ambassador Ledley King paid a visit to Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Sweden, one of our official supporters clubs, in Stockholm over the weekend.
The legendary former captain attended an event with just over 100 members in the Swedish capital city prior to our Premier League clash with Wigan on Saturday.
Ledley took part in a Q&A and autograph signing session at O’Leary’s restaurant, before heading to the Viasat Fotboll TV studios to be a pundit during their live coverage of the game at the DW Stadium.
Mathias Bridfelt of THSS said: “Having a legend like Ledley come to visit us is something that everyone at THSS will remember and cherish for the rest of their lives.
“Since the supporters club was set up in 2004, we have been delighted with the level of support we have received from the Club, but getting to meet one of our heroes in the flesh was something else.
“Ledley took the time to sign autographs and answer questions for everyone in attendance, and was a credit to both himself and Tottenham Hotspur.
“I cannot thank him and the Club enough for making it an unforgettable weekend for THSS and look forward to future events.”
Ledley added: “I’ve known for many years of the fantastic support the Club receives from all over the world, but rarely get the chance to meet fans from outside the UK.
“I can honestly say that the supporters in Sweden are just as passionate as the fans in N17, and it was an absolute pleasure to spend time with them.
“My Ambassadorial role has given me the chance to experience many things with the Club that I wouldn’t have got the chance to while playing, and getting out to meet fans all over the world is an important part of this role.”
