The news today according to Spurs boss Juande Ramos is that Ledley King is still “far away” from any potential comeback will be a major irritant to the White Hart Lane faithful. The Daily Mail reports that “King’s recovery has been limited to training with the squad for two days a week before building up his fitness on his own.” and this one step forward two steps back injury rigmarole will be even more difficul to stomach as defence is such an area of weakness for Tottenham. Ramos said:
“Ledley King is very far away. It is difficult to say two weeks, three weeks, three months or four months. There hasn’t been a setback. It’s a serious injury and it’s a slow recovery.”
And without King, and with only a small sliver of hope at signing any decent replacements in January according to Ramos, is this going to be a long hard winter for Tottenham?
