Former Tottenham captain Ledley King insists there ‘are some special times round the corner’ for the club.
The 36-year-old took to his personal Twitter account following Tottenham’s 6-1 win over Leicester on Thursday to deliver his verdict on a sublime attacking display.

He said: “Running out of superlatives for this team and the goal machine @HKane. There are some special times round the corner.”
Tottenham ripped their Premier League opponents to pieces on what was their penultimate game of the season, courtesy of a stunning four-goal haul from Harry Kane, and a brace from Son Heung-Min.
Yet despite Spurs missing out on the Premier League title this season, and with the club set to begin a fresh chapter away from White Hart Lane next term, King insists there are exciting times ahead.
Doubts have been raised over Tottenham’s ability to replicate their formidable form at their new Wembley home next year, having struggled to perform there in Europe earlier this season.
The north London club won just two of their eight matches in European competitions, both in the Champions League and Europa League.
But whilst praising Tottenham’s overall display, King also reserved special praise for Spurs’ top goalscorer, insisting he was ‘running out of superlatives’.
Kane, 23, took his tally for the season up to an incredible 26 goals from just 29 league appearances, whilst moving into the driving seat in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot award.
The England international began the game two goals adrift of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, who led the way with 24 goals, but Kane now holds the advantage heading into the final day of the season on Sunday.
His four-goal haul against Leicester also makes him the first Tottenham player since Jimmy Greaves in the 1968-69 campaign to score four hat-tricks in a single season.
