Tottenham captain King: I keep playing because I love football

Tottenham captain Ledley King says his love of football drives him on.

King's knee problems are well documented.

Asked what kept him going through the bad times, King said: "I love football, I love playing.

"Of course, there have been some difficult moments over the last few years.

"I don't necessarily enjoy the work I have to do inside when all the lads are outside on the training ground. It can be frustrating.

"But, as a professional, I have to do that to be able to play matches. Like I said, I love football and that is what has kept me going."
