No luck for Ledley
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 has suffered 'a little jolt backwards' in his quest to regain full fitness.
Our England international defender missed out on all our pre-season work after suffering a hip injury out jogging.
Much to his delight and as reported on this website, he made a return to the training fold this week and was involved in eight-a-side games but boss Glenn Hoddle reported that the problem had stiffened up again.
Glenn explained: "Ledley hasn't really done anything in pre-season. He's done this week's training but still feels a little discomfort.
"Unfortunately he's had a little jolt backwards, nothing major. He's been training fine but overnight he came in it had stiffened up, so we have to be a bit careful on that one.
"We've got to rest him for a few more days. It's a blow for us. He needs to overcome the injury and then get himself fit."
