Ledley King will be disciplined by Tottenham after being arrested outside a nightclub last weekend.

The Tottenham defender has apologised to manager Harry Redknapp but he will be in the team which faces Manchester City at White Hart Lane on Saturday. Redknapp would not detail what punishment King would receive but he did launch an attack on the drink culture which pervades football.

Redknapp said: "Ledley will play tomorrow (Saturday). He has apologised. He knows he was wrong. He made a mistake and he has to learn from that and make sure it doesn't happen again. I've had a good chat with him."

Redknapp added: "There is no problem with people having the occasional drink but if you have to get drunk you shouldn't be drinking.

"I don't want players going to nightclubs and misbehaving. The problems nearly all come when players get drunk. These players are role models. They've got kids looking up to them."
