Comments From The Left

The Premiership is full of controversy, can we say that once you sign for any club that you have a target on your back from any of the media. So, with that in mind, you should probably keep your nose clean and keep your answers short. Well, we have a left-back that wants to let the people know how he really feels. Benoît Assou-Ekotto recently gave some hot quotables to The Sun published last Saturday. I guess this Cameroon international is just not rating his competition's lifestyle choices off the field. Here's a couple of his quotes:

"We kick a ball around and we earn 100,000, 200,000 or even 300,000 euros a week. We don't improve the world. It's not like we invented hot water. We just kick a ball.

"But sometimes when these guys go out, you'd think they were rock stars.

"I could understand that you wear dark glasses at night time when you do open-heart surgery and save lives, but not if you're a footballer.

"I'm not in the same world as most of the people in football. I really don't like this world.

"These people didn't feed me, they didn't bring me into the world and my life won't improve by going to a nightclub and drinking loads of champagne.

"I prefer to support players like Deco, who has used his fame to go back to Brazil to help some charities. I also like players of temperament like Edgar Davids.

"My view is whether you're a billionaire, Miss World or whoever, if I have to say 'f*** off' to you, then that is what I'll say."

Let's see Benoît back up his words against his fellow Indomitable Lion Eto'o and Milito in the Champs League.
