Tottenham confirm Ledley King appointment as first-team assistant

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the appointment of former captain and club legend Ledley King as the new first-team assistant manager, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The 39-year-old King spent his entire playing career at Tottenham and has been serving as a club ambassador since his retirement in 2012. And now, he has been brought in on board into Jose Mourinho‘s backroom staff heading into the 2020/21 campaign. (h/t Daily Mail)

Mourinho confirmed last month that long-term assistant Ricardo Formosinho would be leaving. The Portuguese had also unofficially confirmed that King would be joining the coaching staff after Spurs’ final league game against Crystal Palace.

And now, the club has officially confirmed the appointment of the club legend. Welcoming his new assistant, Mourinho said (h/t Daily Mail):

“I am extremely pleased to be welcoming Ledley into the first team group as we continue our preparations for the new season. He has a tremendous affinity with this football club and the fans appreciate just how much he has accomplished as a true Spurs man both on and off the pitch.”

King worked with Mourinho and the first-team during lockdown, helping the players with the defensive side of the game.

“We have developed a good relationship since I arrived, and we hope to use his experience and insight to support the work we are doing with the squad.”

A one-club man, King made over 320 appearances for Spurs. Injuries hampered his career, but the former England international is an icon and a legend at the club. His appointment will, no doubt, be a big boost for the team.
