‘What A Story!’ – Benoit Assou-Ekotto Refutes Harry Redknapp’s Claim That He Is Intent On Becoming A Pornstar

Who Ate All the Pies at related • 0 views

Unfortunately for all concerned, Benoit Assou-Ekotto has moved to address recent speculation that he's intent on giving up professional football in favour of becoming a pornstar.

The spurious reports stem from a quote given in jest by Harry Redknapp, who claimed his attempt tosign Assou-Ekotto for Birmingham City was hindered by the fact that the former Tottenham left-back was "more interested" in making the move into adult entertainment.

Tottenham have sent former starting left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto on loan to Championship side Queens Park Rangers. Assou-Ekotto reunited with former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp on transfer deadline day.

The 29 year old defender arrived at White Hart Lane in 2006 from French club Lens but has not played a big role under manager Andre Villas-Boas, who took over for Redknapp in the summer of 2012.

Looking more and more like a young Gil Scott Heron every time we see him, Benoit Assou-Ekotto gave an interview to Goal.com in which he freely admitted that he's never heard of the chap his club have just spent £17million on acquiring from Corinthians, i.e, the man they call Paulinho.

Rose stays at Sunderland as Benny returns to fitness

Tottenham's versatile left sided player Danny Rose will stay at Sunderland until the end of the season after his parent club allowed the recall clause to lapse. There had been some doubt as to whether Rose would return to White Hart Lane after a long term injury to left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto but with BAE back in the squad, Danny stays in the North East.

Spurs look to have only two first team members unavailable as they make the short trip to Loftus Road. Younes Kaboul remains on the long term injury list, with a possible return pencilled in for next month while William Gallas continues to miss out with the calf strain he picked up at Villa Park.

"William will be out of the game, unfortunately," said Andre Villas-Boas.

A defensive injury blow for Spurs

Injury news from a Spurs point of view has been largely positive with Scott Parker returning to the squad after a long term Achilles issue and Benoit Assou-Ekotto in contention for a starting role in this weekend's FA Cup tie.

However, the forgotten man in all this is Younes Kaboul and the French centre half has been dealt another blow today with reports that he is set to stay on the sidelines until February at the very least.

The games are coming thick and fast right now but Spurs will have to tackle this one without the services of Gareth Bale. If the winger was to miss a game, this would probably be one of the more preferable ones but Reading can be dangerous at times – as West Ham found out at the weekend!

It may well be a simple case of slotting Clint Dempsey in, in Bale's place but the likes of Sigurdsson and Townsend may challenge that view.

Versatile Brazilian could answer a number of issues at Spurs

Another day another transfer link and this time it sees Tottenham mentioned in connection with Lyon's Michel Bastos. Despite his name and his playing base, Bastos is a Brazilian international with 10 full caps to his name and throughout his career has been mostly deployed on the left wing.

At first, a move for the 29 year old seems unlikely because of Gareth Bale's dominance on the left and if an injury were to arise, AVB may well see Andros Townsend as being perfectly capable of slotting in as Bale's cover.

Naughton was called up after an injury to our regular left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto and it's been confirmed that BAE is likely to be ruled out of contention for around four weeks.

The left back place at Spurs has arguably been our only problem position this year and the lack of cover was highlighted by Benoit Assou-Ekotto's extended lay off.

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has confirmed today that parent club Spurs have the option to recall left back Danny Rose when the transfer window re-opens in January. Regular left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto has been on the sidelines at White Hart Lane for several weeks but as he nears full fitness, O'Neill expects Rose to stay in the north east until the end of the season at least.

It's been just two and a half weeks since Gareth Bale limped out of our away game with Fulham but breaking news this evening confirms that the Welshman is back in full training. Even better is the suggestion that Bale is in line to return to the starting line up for Saturday's game against Stoke.

"It's good news," said Andre Villas-Boas.

AVB suggested that Scott Parker may be involved on Sunday but having spent so long on the sidelines it's hard to see him taking Sandro's place on the right centre of midfield. Otherwise, injuries look set to dictate an unchanged team.

"Scott Parker has made a good recovery and there is certainly a possibility he could be involved," Andre said.

It's not yet clear whether Benoit Assou-Ekotto's return to first team training means that he is available for Sunday's game with Swansea but AVB may be tempted to rush the 28 year old back into the side as soon as he possibly can.

Unlike the case of Scott Parker, where impressive performances from Sandro are blocking Scott's progress back into the starting XI, Benny's absence has exposed a lack of cover in the left back position.

Does Caulker have a vacancy at Spurs to make his own?

An unlikely beneficiary following Benoit Assou-Ekotto's injury has been Steven Caulker. After BAE's problems forced him onto the sidelines, AVB first used Kyle Naughton and then Gareth Bale at left back before Jan Vertonghen slotted in and looked as if he'd been playing there for his entire career.

Vertonghen touted for permanent switch

Jan Vertonghen has rapidly become a fans favourite and an early contender for player of the season at White Hart Lane. One of the major factors that has impressed us is the Belgian's ability to slot in so comfortably in central defence and then at left back in the absence of Benoit Assou-Ekotto.

The transition was so smooth that many are suggesting a permanent switch to the left side of defence as Jan's best position.

Having lost the services of Benoit Assou-Ekotto prior to the Reading game, Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas has used three players in four matches in the left back slot – all of whom have played slightly out of position.

After Kyle Naughton's injury, Gareth Bale filled in against QPR in an experiment that was abandoned at half time.

Harry Redknapp once predicted that Gareth Bale would ultimately revert to his old left back position and finish his career there but that's not a view shared by Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas. On Sunday against QPR, injuries to BAE and Kyle Naughton meant that Gareth dropped back into defence at the start but the lack of a cutting edge up front saw AVB switch things around at half time.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto has been a largely permanent fixture in the Tottenham side for a number of years now. During the 2008–09 campaign, Ekotto became first choice in the left back role and has made the position his own until fairly recently. Benny hasn't impressed Andre Villas-Boas since his arrival as Tottenham manager and following limited chances in the first team, the Cameroon international has made the decision to move to QPR on load for the remainder of the season.
