Former Tottenham left-back, who fell out with the club, Benoît Assou-Ekotto has joined newly promoted French side FC Metz. The 32-year-old (33 next March) Cameroonian international spent last season at St Étienne on a one-year deal. He has signed another one-year deal with Metz.
Assou-Ekotto said he didn't like football, only did it because it paid well. He then sat at Spurs to collect his wages while not being allowed to train. The club wanted shot of him after he overstepped the mark and he showed money was more important to him than playing football, just like his pal Emmanuel Adebayor.
Assou-Ekotto was once a crowd favourite at White Hart Lane, but his actions saw that disintegrate. He went on loan to QPR whose fans were less than impressed, they thought he only tried for part of the season when he felt like it.
Incidentally, Emmanuel Adebayor doesn't have a club, nobody wants him. Ina desperate attempt to put his name in the marketplace he has suggested he made a mistake in forcing his way out of Arsenal. Given the guy is clearly driven bu greed, he posts pictures flaunting his wealth, I'd take that apparent admission with a pinch of salt.
