Spurs captain Ledley King has apologised to his manager Harry Redknapp and team-mates following his arrest in the early hours of this morning for an alleged assault.
The centre back was released on bail several hours following his arrest and released an official apology on the Tottenham website: "I sincerely regret that a night out with friends went too far. I have apologised to Harry and I fully appreciate that, as a professional footballer, I have a duty to behave in a responsible manner."
The 28-year-old England international continued: "I am assisting the police with their inquiries. Anyone who knows me knows that much of what has been suggested is totally out of character. I am keen to resolve this as soon as possible and concentrate on my football. I shall be putting my all into ensuring I give of my best for the remaining fixtures."
Details of the alleged assault have not been released but it's nice to see that the defender is using his minimal synovial fluid in an intelligent way.
