King happy with Harry's arrival

27 Oct 2008 - 12:48:51

Tottenham defender Ledley King is relieved that the club have finally appointed an Englishman as their new manager.

Harry Redknapp replaced Juande Ramos in the White Hart Lane hot-seat over the weekend and the Spurs team responded by claiming their first three-point haul of the campaign by beating Bolton Wanderers 2-0.

King told the London Evening Standard: "It's brilliant to have an English manager. It's been a while and I'm looking forward to the relationship.

"Harry spoke to us for the first time on the morning of the game, and he gave us confidence. He said we had brilliant players in the team, and that he believed we could get out of this situation.

"It looked like a weight had been lifted off the players' shoulders. They played with freedom, and it was more like the old Tottenham."

Redknapp has already brought Kevin Bond to the club and is expected to name Tim Sherwood as his assistant later this week.
