Spurs fans on Twitter have been discussing former defender Ledley King. 

A Spursy Podcast prompted a discussion on the former England international amongst Spurs fans on Twitter by asking for the thoughts on Lilywhites fans. The now-39-year-old made 323 appearances for the North London club between 1999-2012, scoring 14 goals in the process (per Tottenham Hotspur).

Spurs signed Eriksen in 2013 but from which team?

However, it is widely regarded that injuries led to premature retirement and perhaps prevented the centre-back for being more of a regular for both club and country, as injury problems plagued him throughout his career.

Would King have left Spurs had he not been blighted by injuries?

Yes

Yes

No

No

A sample of tweets from Spurs fans discussing King can be seen in the tweets below.

These Spurs fans seem to agree that King may well not have remained a one-club man had his knee injures not been so prevalent in his career, although many suggest that he was still world-class.

What do we think?

It would be interesting to see how King’s career would’ve played out had he not had problems with injuries and whether he would be held in the same regard by Spurs fans had he moved away from the club in his prime.
