Footballers in this day and age appear to not like being taunted by fans. Tottenham full back Benoit Assou-Ekotto didn’t take too kindly to being called shit by a fan and reacted by attempting to attack the fan. Thankfully Tottenham assistant boss Joe Jordan was the calm head on the scene able to prevent a potentially explosive event from turning ugly.
The Tottenham fan was said to be considering pressing charges but is instead going to meet the Cameroonian international to discuss the incident, perhaps over a pint, which seems a very civilised way of resolving the matter.
So next time you decide to state at volume that one of your club’s players is in fact shit, within earshot, remember what result. You could end up having a cosy evening with that very player!
