Looking more and more like a young Gil Scott Heron every time we see him, Benoit Assou-Ekotto gave an interview to in which he freely admitted that he’s never heard of the chap his club have just spent £17million on acquiring from Corinthians, i.e, the man they call Paulinho…

However, given this is the man that was unaware Luis Suarez feasted upon human flesh last season until someone sat him down and showed him the footage, maybe it’s not so very surprising that Assou-Ekotto doesn’t know the first thing about Paulinho – a man who, let’s be honest, only showed up on most English fans’ radars a month or so ago anyway when he scored against our brave, brave boys at Wembley.

You’ve got to love Benny. The man don’t give a f**k.

    England’s brave, brave boys at the MARACANA.

    And I find BAE’s attitude and stance quite refreshing!

    God, I love Benoit. He’s got to be the nicest guy in the premier league, purely because he doesn’t give a shit about anything that’s going on around him.

  4. Jarren says:

    Berbatov’s African cousin, surely.

    Cool. As.

    This quote (from the Suarez post regarding team loyalty) says it all…

    “I must say, as well, that I have seen quite a few Spurs players kiss the badge and then fuck off. I am still here.”

    Like a boss.
