Tottenham defender Benoît Assou-Ekotto’s commitment to football has often been questioned in the past, but the latest news coming out of White Hart Lane suggests it’s even worse than Lilywhites fans first thought.
The Cameroonian, who once told The Guardian: “I play for the money. Football’s not my passion” has been diagnosed with what medical experts are calling ‘soccer blindness’.
The Premier League full back is so uninspired by the beautiful game it is said that he often forgets what a football actually is and has been ordered by Andre Villas-Boas to wear special headphones during games that repeat the word ‘football’ up to 750 times in a 90 minute period.
The fantastical claims were reported by none other than Arsenal legend Ian Wright for O2’s Future News, a show where the former Gunners striker predicts what will happen in the game during the coming months.
You can see the full video report below but for now it is said that Assou-Ekotto remains in a stable, if uninspired condition.
