Speaking to RMC, Metz left-back Benoît Assou Ekotto, whose contract expires next month, discussed rumours that he will stop playing football in order to become a part of the adult entertainment industry.
“The worst thing is that I don’t have the necessary qualities to become a pornstar. It made me laugh more than anything else. My mother said to me, on the contrary, that she would have preferred a different present on Mother’s Day than opening the newspaper and to see that her son could be a porn actor next year.”
The rumours began when Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp claimed that he had tried to sign the former Cameroonian international this summer but was informed that he wanted to become a pornstar this summer instead. Incredibly, since Redknapp’s declaration, Assou Ekotto says he has received offers from the adult entertainment industry.
“Maybe my reputation precedes me, I do knot know. But in any case I would like to thank them. Whether it was Jacquie and Michel or Dorcel for eventually offering me work next year if I stop playing football. It is always nice to know that one will not be unemployed whatever happens.”
