Spurs will take King action

15 May 2009 02:48
Tottenham Hotspur will discipline Ledley King after the club captain was arrested outside a London nightclub last weekend. The 28-year-old England international has apologised for his conduct after being arrested and bailed over an alleged assault in the early hours of Sunday morning. Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed that King will be included in his squad for Saturday's visit of Manchester City. However, the club will be taking action against the defender following the incident. "Ledley will play tomorrow. He has apologised. He knows he was wrong," said Redknapp. "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." Meanwhile, Redknapp has warned the rest of his squad that incidents involving alcohol will not be tolerated. Earlier in the week, he threatened to introduce an alcohol ban at White Hart Lane next season. "There is no problem with people having the occasional drink, but if you have to get drunk you shouldn't be drinking," he continued. "I don't want player 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."
