Club captain Ledley King suffered a setback on Tuesday as he attempted to make yet another comeback from injury. King seemed to breeze through training before suffering problems with his troublesome groin right at the end of the session.
Harry Redknapp broke the bad news: “Ledley was playing great and then, with the last kick of the morning, did his groin again.”
It’s not been confirmed whether the player will need further surgery but it seems to be a distinct possibility. Redknapp added: “We’ve been deciding if he needs an operation or not, so we’ve been pushing him a bit. He’ll have to talk to the medical people now to make that decision.”
Ledley has made unlikely, even miraculous comebacks before, but at the age of 30 and with news of this latest setback, fans are left wondering again as to whether the dreaded ‘retirement’ announcement is just around the corner.
