Benoit Assou-Ekotto Buys $30 Boots From eBay Listings
The Saint-Etienne defender, Benoît Assou-Ekotto carries an Oyster card and frequents the London Underground, often walking with Spurs supporters towards the stadium before home games. Lately surfaced the news about the boots he gets from eBay. Good for him, not spending money without care and helping eBay sellers.
“When you’re European, it’s better because business is done in Europe.”
“I buy shoes for €30 (approx £23). It’s a good price for comfortable boots. You can find them on Ebay, and they’re not expensive.”
“I’d rather be free than to prostitute myself for a sponsor. In all honesty, when you’re an African player, it’s not that interesting to have a sponsor.” said Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
