Tottenham captain Ledley King has hailed Sebastien Bassong's goal scoring debut.

"Sebastien was brilliant," King told the Spurs website. "I played 45 minutes with him against Olympiacos and realised straight away what a good player he is.

"He was even better against Liverpool. He showed that he going to be a very good player for this club.

"He's a great lad, a great athlete and we're delighted to have him here."
