Lewis Holtby nailed Howard Webb with a crunching tackle in Ledley King's testimonial

Fans at White Hart Lane gave the German midfielder a huge cheer after he took out the man in the middle.

A NUMBER OF footballing greats turned out to take part in Ledley King’s testimonial at White Hart Lane last night.

A Spurs XI took on a team of guests including Edgar Davids, David Ginola, Dimitar Berbatov and Teddy Sheringham as fans officially said goodbye to the former England defender — who retired in the summer of 2012.

King’s side won out 6-3 but one of the most priceless moments of the night came when current Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby chopped down referee Howard Webb as he attempted to go on a mazy run.
