Tottenham captain Ledley King is building up his fitness after knee surgery in the summer - and Gareth Bale's foot injury is taking longer than expected.

"It's quite difficult with injuries, because you think it will take a certain time - and then it takes longer," said coach Juande Ramos.

"With Ledley King, he's obviously going to get fitter. But it will take him some time to get match fit."
