TOTTENHAM boss Harry Redknapp has praised the influence of defender Ledley King – and claims his club captain deserves comparisons with the likes of Bobby Moore and Alan Hansen.
King has long battled a knee injury and was restricted to just nine appearances last season before having more surgery over the summer.
Redknapp said: “Ledley is an amazing player. He only ever trains for a few minutes the day before a game. He gives an air of confidence, he knows what he is doing. Like the Bobby Moores and Alan Hansens over the years, they understand what they are doing – and that’s what he does.”
