King: Spurs can win title in two years

Former Tottenham captain Ledley King thinks it is realistic for the club to aspire to win the Premier League within two years if they continue their current development.

King, who retired through injury at the end of last season, is now a club ambassador and believes that Spurs have improved under Andre Villas-Boas as they close in on a top four spot this season. Spurs last won the top flight trophy in 1961, but King believes that they can start to look at a title challenge.

"I rate the current Spurs team very highly," he told BBC School Reporters at Northumberland Park Community School. "I think we've got a young and ambitious manager who's great and is going to do well for the club.

"I think we've got a great group of players at a good age where they're improving all the time and reaching their peak. The way the team are progressing at the minute, hopefully in the next year or two they will be really challenging for the Premier League."

The Promised Land of the Champions League is something that Spurs have to continue to qualify for if the club are to make strides.

King, who reached the quarter-finals under Harry Redknapp in 2010-11, added: "Hopefully this season we will finish in the Champions League places and then keep doing that. It's a big club and you've got to make sure it's not just a one-off, you've got to keep doing it. Hopefully we can qualify this season and continue doing that for the future."

Spurs' development is also tied to the prospect of a new stadium, which will be built near White Hart Lane over the next few years.

"We have to keep moving with the times," King said. "Ours is a great stadium and I'll be sad to see it go but we've got so many fans all over the world and it would be nice for more fans to come and watch the team play. The new stadium will be next door, here on White Hart Lane, which is important."
