Ledley Q&A special
08 May 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Ledley King's Testimonial is drawing ever closer - and as part of our special programme for Monday night, we asked our fans on Facebook to provide the questions for a Question and Answer feature.
As always, the fans responded in numbers and the programme will have a 20 questions with our legendary former skipper.
As a taster, here are five of those questions...
How can you describe your love for Tottenham Hotspur? From Raji Keyrouz
Ledley: “It’s been most of my life and it’s hard to put into words how important the club has been for me.”
Who was your toughest opponent? From Carl Clifton
Ledley: “There were different types of tough opponents. I always said Kevin Davies was one of the toughest strikers to player against, he was always a handful. Then you have played like Thierry Henry, who had all the ability in the world. Most of the time in the Premier League you are playing against top-quality strikers and they are always going to battle and make life difficult for defenders.”
What was your proudest moment in a Spurs shirt? From Jake 'Snafu' Horrocks
Ledley: “Lifting the League Cup after beating Chelsea in the final at Wembley in 2008. It was something I’d always dreamed of and it came true.”
What's involved in your ambassadorial role at Tottenham? From Simon White
Ledley: “Tottenham Hotspur Foundation do a lot of great work in the community and I’m able to be a part of that, go out and try to help in the community, to help the youngsters try to achieve their dreams. I’m also able to go abroad to represent the club and meet supporters, to really engage with fans. I enjoy that.”
What was the best bit of advice given to you as a professional footballer? From Stuart McNulty
Ledley: “I got a lot of great advice along the way. I do remember George Graham saying to me ‘don’t waste your talent, work hard to make sure you achieve what you can achieve’.”
