Tottenham boss Ramos determined to field King tonight

Tottenham boss Juande Ramos will field skipper Ledley King tonight at UEFA Cup opponents Udinese. Rejecting suggestions it would be better to reserve his injury-plagued skipper for the League, Ramos said: "The problem is that it is not possible to play Vedran Corluka in the UEFA Cup. "We need to think of both competitions. So if Corluka is cup-tied, we must use the others in this competition. The most important at the moment is the UEFA Cup. On Friday, I will say the Premier League."
