Video: Benoit Assou Ekotto says he’s never heard of new Tottenham signing Paulinho
Spurs left-back Benoit Assou Ekotto is well known for having absolutely no interest in football except for the 90 minutes he’s playing.
He has emphasised that point even further by revealing that he has never heard of his new £17m team-mate, Brazil international Paulinho.
The boy from Brazil shouldn’t feel too hard done by though: the Cameroon international also claims that he did not know who Rafael Van Der Vaart was when he joined Spurs.
The previous example of Assou Ekotto’s ignorance of the world of football was his assertion that he didn’t know Luis Suarez had bitten anybody.
