Tottenham: Belief is key to King's majestic rise

Dean Richards claims the key to Ledley King's brilliant form this season is that he is beginning to believe in himself.

Richards feels that King came of age as a player when he made his first start for England against France in Euro 2004.

King's performance after stepping in for the injured John Terry confounded the critics who thought the player might struggle at the top level.

And many felt the 23-year-old Tottenham centre-half had done enough against the French to start in England's next match against Switzerland.

"He has been outstanding," Richards told the club website. "In Euro 2004 a few people before the game against France were doubting him.

"I didn't doubt him for a second and I think he was England's best player that night. From then his confidence has grown and grown.

"Ledley is a quiet lad, a bit shy, but I think now he is starting to believe in himself and realise what a great player he is.

"I am delighted for him, I send him a text before England games and have been so happy for him. He has been first class."

Why is Dean Richards making comments on anyone, he doesn't even get a game anymore, injured or not!

Lol @ Richards...

But he is correct, Ledley has turned into a class defender. It is going to be really tough to make the choices at the back for England now with him playing so well. You have King, Terry, Rio and Campbell.....

He is developing into a class defender, I'd still go for Rio and Sol at the back for England though.

Thing is it will be a bit of a blow for him.

The way he has played i would be gutted if Campbell and Rio just waltz back into the side...

I don't think he would see it that way.
Might get in for the next one?
