A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Thursday evening
Former captain Ledley King has said that the side has been punished for trying to play ‘the Tottenham way’ against the top four sides.
In an interview with London24, King feels that Spurs have been punished for playing an attacking style of football against the top teams – which has led to heavy defeats against Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea this season.
He said: “I think the difficulty is that when you go to the top teams you can get punished very easily, especially when you believe in your own qualities and you feel you can have a go at them.
“There’s a thin line between that and leaving yourself open, and I think that’s what’s happened. We’ve been punished trying to play our attacking style of football, which means that we’ll have a go at teams.”
The report says that the winger has spoken to Head Coach Tim Sherwood about the situation having only made nine appearances since his return from a hamstring injury in February.
He said: “I knew it would be difficult from the beginning, it has been, everything is new and I’ve had to adapt to a lot of new things, a lot of new people. It’s been a fun time.”
