Doesn't even train, at all, and still good enough to be scooped up by Capello.

Ledley King is a hero, and a perfect defender.

Try and find a weakness.

he is a very good defender and i hope him keep his best and prove that with the three lions. but to ask and say him is the best defender in the universe would be a bit difficult.

May have been a bit drunk when I posted this.

Still, it doesn't change the fact that he is a hero :proud:

And seriously he is one of the finest defenders of his generation.

Wouldnt swap Agger, Carragher or Skrtel for him.Hyypia was better aswell in his prime, and he's just as usefull now considering he can start a match at Old Trafford with 5 minutes notice and help destroy them.And that's just Liverpool related.

King set to retire from International football

According to a report in the British tabloid The Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur defender Ledley King is set to announce his retirement from international football.

The centre-back, who is unable to train for his club, won a shock call-up to the England squad over the weekend for the upcoming matches against Slovakia and Ukraine.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp questioned England's decision to call up the defender, telling The Independent, "It is a ridiculous situation really.

"He can't train, if he trains then it's seven days before he can play or do anything again. If he plays on a Saturday then it is touch-and-go whether he can play the next Saturday".


He can't train?

No, he's the only player (maybe Saha as well) who is more likely to pick up injuries warming up than from a two footed tackle from behind

It's not about "picking an injury", He has constant trouble with the cartilage (or lack thereof) in his right knee and can't put it under pressure for long. That's why he doesn't do much training during the week, to be able to play when it matters.
