Former Tottenham captain Ledley King has said that he expects Andros Townsend and Kyle Walker to come back much stronger next season. For much of the World Cup qualifying campaign, these two players were extremely important for the England national team. However, they have had to miss out on the plane to Brazil due to injuries. Townsend will be waiting for the results on his MRI scan, but he is unlikely to be fit for the showpiece event that will begin on June 12.
The same is also the case with Kyle Walker, who has been England’s first choice right-back for some time. King, who has been part of the England national team in the past, says that these two players are extremely capable of coping with the disappointment and coming back much stronger. King was recently involved in a testimonial match in appreciation for his service with the club. He started out his career at Tottenham and went on to captain the club. He retired after his failure to prevent knee injuries from taking over his career.
He is currently working as the ambassador at the club. Tottenham have had a disappointing campaign in which they failed to secure a top four finish despite spending more than £ 100 million last summer.

If they do this then they are going to play in the European Championships or the World Cup one day. Time is on their side, so they can get themselve’s right again.
