Juande set to risk his Tottenham tenure by throwing this oft-injured defender on the front line: He can’t be serious!

Posted by

Juande Ramos isn’t a gambling man at heart. But with the season on the line, and his managerial career at Tottenham hanging by a thread, the Spaniard figures he’ll try anything to get the club back on track.

Juande Ramos is set to gamble on his future as Tottenham manager tonight by throwing Ledley King back into the team against Udinese in the UEFA Cup.

The move will almost certainly rule the Spurs skipper out of Sunday’s Premier League match with Bolton as the defender is unable to play two matches in a week because of chronic knee problems.

Ledley King has been dealing with an on-again off-again injury for the better part of his time at the club. Whilst it doesn’t appear that King is 100% ready, it does appear that he’s healthy enough to give it a go tonight. But it looks like the move is a temporary stop-gap since he won’t be fit enough to play the weekend.

What do Spurs supporters think about this move?
