Many have suggested that Spurs defenders Ledley King is a must for the plane to South Africa, whilst others have had question marks over his fitness. For me it’s a no brainer, he is being touted as being better than both Rio and Terry but can he handle 3 games in quick succession? Why not, he managed to do it for Tottenham. What I don’t understand is the fact that everyone is questioning his fitness level due to missing games throughout the domestic season, now let’s get one thing straight here, Ledley played double the premiership games to Rio Ferdinand last season, so why is Ledley’s fitness the one in question?
I remember back in Euro 2004 when Ledley was thrown in at the deep end for the opening game agaisnt France and put on a very impressive display then. Theirry Henry classed him as the best defender he has ever faced. I for one don’t feel that people have noticed just how good Ledley King really is, he reads the game better than any other defender and personally due to the poor season John Terry had I would put him at the back with Rio for as many games as he can handle.
What are your thoughts, people are debating whether he should even be in the squad but for me he should be one of the first names on the team sheet.
