Benoit Assou-Ekotto has spent six season at Tottenham Hotspur but has insisted he will never kiss their badge.
“It infuriates me when footballers go on about playing for the shirt,” he told the Sunday Mirror in October 2011. “I think they should be held accountable for it when they kiss the badge and six months later clear off for a better pay day. They turn up at a press conference and go on about history and the love of the club. But what is the first thing they ask about before signing? How much!”
