During his career, King also had opportunities to move to bigger clubs.
"There‚Äôs nothing better than to try to propel your club to be one of the best,‚ÄĚ King, who is now an ambassador for Spurs, told the London Evening Standard. ‚ÄúIt is one thing to leave and play for one of the so-called best teams but, for me, the satisfaction is to improve your own team and make it the best. That‚Äôs how I feel Gareth will look at it.
‚ÄúGareth is a good guy, he‚Äôs a family kind of guy. He‚Äôs got good friends at Tottenham and I think that‚Äôs the difference from some of the other players [who left]. Hopefully, that keeps him here.
‚ÄúThere were little situations in my career but I was always happy at ¬≠Tottenham and throughout my time as a player, I always thought they were showing signs of progressing. I felt a responsibility to push the club in the right direction and it‚Äôs a similar thing for Gareth.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs happy at the club and he will see that they‚Äôre moving in the right direction. Hopefully, that will be enough to keep him.‚ÄĚ
