Assou-Ekotto loves money, hates football

Tottenham's Benoit Assou-Ekotto has never heard of new signing Paulinho because he couldn't give a shit about football.  Fair play.


Assou-Ekotto is a bit of a legend because he openly admits that he only plays football for the money and finds it hard to understand people who don't get why he doesn't care about who Norwich have signed or why Demba Ba doesn't like bicycles.  When asked about whether he knows who Paulinho is he said something like "No and when Rafael Van der Vaart came to training I was like hello but I didn't know it was Van Der Vaart".  Which is good because when asked the same question, my reaction was to try and distract them from my lack of knowledge by screaming and pretending I had pooped myself.  I'm still not sure if it worked.  But I really wish I hadn't pooped myself
