Assou-Ekotto is good at table football

Benoit Assou-Ekotto is not only really good at being a left back, he's also apparently really good at table football.  Which is cool?  I guess.

So there was this bar in Shoreditch (it's in Engerland) and some dudes were hanging out there and found there were some table football games going on, so they wandered up to play and who should be there but Benoit Assou-Ekotto and his mate.  Who Ate All The Pies said:
[We] didn’t actually end up playing against him, but we were on the next table and he and his friend were just amazing. We’ve got a table at work so we play quite a lot, but he was incredible – the best we’ve ever seen.
“People were queuing up to play him – all good players, people who knew what they were doing. It was ‘winner stays on’ and he must have stayed on that table for at least an hour and a half – maybe two! No-one could beat him.
So there you go.  It reminds me of this time I got bored and went to the strip club with my friend and then we met a stripper there.  She asked for a drink but I remembered you aren't allowed to feed them after midnight, or get water on them either, so thankfully I avoided several hours of hilarious escapades and still no-one had sex.
