Successful op for King

BLIGHTED BY INJURIES: Ledley King

TOTTENHAM’S LEDLEY King has had successful knee surgery, the club have confirmed on their website.
Veteran King, who only managed nine appearances for Tottenham last season, underwent an arthroscopy on his left knee on Monday and is expected to return to training at the start of August.

The 30-year-old England international currently struggles to play more than one game a week because of knee injuries that also limit his training.

Considered by many good judges to be the best defender in the country when he is fit, King lived a boyhood dream of captaining Spurs to their first major trophy in nine years after a heroic performance in a 2-1 extra-time win over Chelsea in the Carling Cup Final at Wembley in February 2008.

At present, King still holds the record for the fastest ever goal in Premier League history, scored after just 10 seconds against Bradford City at Valley Parade in December 2000. It was also his first ever goal for the north London outfit.
