Benoit Assou-Ekotto talks as concerns his interest to choose porn over football

0

Early in May, Birmingham coach Harry Redknapp said he would have liked to recruit Metz defender Benoît Assou-Ekotto for Tottenham and QPR ,He  ” prefered to go into porn  “. A simple joke relayed this weekend very seriously in France, to the surprise of the interested …

   So Benoît, what’s this porn story  ?”

(He laughs.) The craziest thing is that it’s been a fortnight, and it’s only coming out now. A lady in England alerted me on Twitter at the time, it rather surprised me. From what I understood , it was in a TV show , the coach Redknapp was asked about the players he would like to recruit. He pulled it out on me, to laugh, and then he moved on. And I, too, until it came out in France this weekend.
 
How did it sound to you ?

That made me laugh. But my mother discovered it this morning, Mother’s Day. She said she would have preferred another gift.
 
You want to be ”  Dirty Harry  ” Redknapp  ?

But no  ! It was just, just a joke, it’s not bad. What is absurd is that we took it seriously. As if I wanted to become a porn actor  ! A fool who says he will stop football to go into porn, it’s like a fool who confesses his homosexuality, It’s very close to a taboo.

«  Jacquie and Michel left me a message, thank you but no  »

On the go, when you learned this story on Twitter, what did you think  ?

It made me happy that he thought of me and that he said that he wanted even though we had no contact in three-four years. The joke did not bother me at all, It even made me laugh.  What bothers me is that people can take it to the first degree. It’s still too big to be true  ! If he had said that I wanted to go to space it would have made less noise.
 
Do you think this can hurt your career  ?

Some players got caught with prostitutes, others fell on their teammate’s wife, and they found contracts, sometimes in big clubs. Why should I pay for statements from a third person, for a joke  ?
 
Too bad, the middle of the X passes perhaps next to a future big star …

(He bursts into laughter.) The worst part is that since this story came out, some of them contacted me on Twitter. Jacquie and Michel left me a message, ”  come and see us  “. And Dorcel offered to come and make a casting  ! Not to mention that an American porn actor wanted me to become his apprentice  ! It made me laugh. Besides, I thank them, but I believe that I will still continue in football …  !  

What do you think?
