Stalteri To Come Out Of Retirement

For one game.



Ledley King Testimonial at White Hart Lane


Currently on loan at Monaco from Fulham, our former forward will be accompanied in Ledley's squad by another ex-teammate in Paul Stalteri.

Paul moved to us in 2005 as a Bundesliga champion having lifted the German title with Werder Bremen the previous year and his time with us will be best remembered by a stoppage-time winner at West Ham United in March, 2007, moments after Dimitar had levelled the scores in the 89th minute.   Now retired, the right-back will be making the trip over from his home in Toronto to feature on Ledley's big night.

"I am very honoured to have received Ledley's invitation for his testimonial," admitted Paul.

"Although I have not played for a while, I can't wait to step out onto the pitch at White Hart Lane again. It is one of my favourite grounds that I have ever played at. The fans are fantastic and I have nothing but great memories of my time at the Lane. I have been very fortunate in my career to have played with some great players and Ledley was certainly one of the greatest.  In my opinion, he is the best centre half England have produced in the last generation."
