Assou-Ekotto dismisses porn star claims, admits being contacted by porn industry

Former defender of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Benoit Assou-Ekotto has dismissed claims from his former coach that he was about to switch from football to the porn industry.

Assou-Ekotto was responding to claims by Harry Redknapp that he wanted to drop his football career and become a porn star. Mr Rednaknapp, former manager of Assou-Ekotto at Tottenham had suggested to the Spurs Show podcast that the former Lion needed some persuading to join his ranks at St Andrew’s, Goal reports.

“The only trouble is that he’s admitted he wants to be a porn star. Maybe I can get another year out of him before he decides to do that,” the coach had said.

However, Mr Assou-Ekotto has come out to discredit the claims. “It was just a joke. What is absurd is that it has been taken seriously. As if I wanted to become a porn actor [...] the joke didn’t bother me at all, it made me laugh,” the football star told France Foot.

The news had gone too far to engulf his personal life. “My mother discovered it on Mother’s Day. She told me that she would have preferred a different gift,” he added.

But the 33 year-old former Lion admits that the porn industry had already contacted him. “The worst is that since it came out, some of them have contacted me on Twitter […] but I believe I will continue in football,” he disclosed.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto last played for Cameroon during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil where he almost turned the pitch into a wrestling ground, as he tried to pick a fight with the current captain of the Lions, Benjamin Moukandjo.

He is currently playing for Metz.
