King wants to reign at Wembley

Published Add your comment

Ledley King is brimming with excitement at the prospect of leading Tottenham out at Wembley once again when they face Chelsea in the semi-final of the FA Cup next month.

Spurs set up an all London affair at the home of football by beating Bolton 3-1 at White Hart Lane on Tuesday evening, with goals from Ryan Nelsen, Gareth Bale and Louis Saha sealing their progression.

The encounter on April 15 will not be the first time Spurs have met Chelsea at the revamped Wembley, with the former triumphed over the latter in a dramatic Carling Cup final that day.

King was the proud captain of Spurs on that occasion, and is relishing the thought of taking back to the hallowed turf in the famous white of Tottenham again.

“It’s great to be going back to such a fantastic stadium and such an occasion against Chelsea,” King told the official Tottenham website.

“We know all about the club’s tradition in the FA Cup and it feels good to be going back there for another semi-final.”

Spurs, meanwhile, face Swansea in the Premier League this weekend hoping to arrest their recent slide which has seen a place in next season's Champions League become far from certain.
