Former Tottenham captain Ledley King is stepping up his move into coaching.
King is the last homegrown player to make it at Spurs.
â€śIt is early days but Iâ€™ve done my coaching theory exam and thereâ€™s a chance I could get into it in the future,â€ť King told the London Evening Standard. â€śIâ€™ve helped out in a few sessions and Iâ€™ve been trying to get involved as much as I can.
â€śTottenham have been such a big part of my life and Iâ€™ve learned a lot along the way, so itâ€™s about speaking to the kids and making sure they can listen and learn when advice is passed on.
â€śItâ€™s about young players getting opportunities but itâ€™s difficult for them to get through, with the players brought in from abroad and the money spent.
â€śItâ€™s important theyâ€™re given a chance because the fans love a player who has come through the set-up, someone they can identify with.
â€śThere are some excellent young players here and itâ€™s about getting them chances. Itâ€™s really progressed since I was a youngster and young players are given every chance to push through into the first team.â€ť
