Spurs hero King named U18 coach

Former Tottenham captain Ledley King has joined the U18 coaching staff.

Following his retirement, King was appointed as Club Ambassador, and now takes on a part-time coaching role with the club's Under-18s.

"Ledley has come through the coaching training programme undertaken by a number of senior players in recent seasons, including Scott Parker, Brad Friedel and Michael Dawson," Academy Manager John McDermott told the club's official website.

"We are now looking for Ledley to spend 2-3 days a week assisting our Under-18 group with their on and off pitch development.

"Using senior players as role models within our Academy is a scheme we are keen to nurture and develop further."
