Is it true that Assou Ekotto is planning to become a porn actor?

The answer is:

It is said that after his football career, the young man with a dream body is considering entering the porn industry. True?

Assou Ekotto was obviously forced to publish a message on his Facebook page yesterday to shut down the crazy rumour that announced his move to the porn industry. The well-known defender of the Indomitable Lions and the Football Club of Metz (France) wrote: “Good day all. I wanted to specify that in the best case I will be a professional footballer next year and in the worst case, I will be jobless but not a porn actor lol (it is rather unfortunate to have to deny such things because incompetent people are spreading such rumours. But well, that is life).”

The mistake came from his former coach, the current manager of British Birmingham City Football Club, Harry Redknapp. In a British comedy show (the Spurs Show) in mid-May, this coach said to the presenter that he would have loved to recruit Benoît Assou Ekotto; but the young footballer “would rather move into porn”. A dig which travelled through the football world and reached… the porn industry. On the website of the very serious newspaper “France Football”, Assou Ekotto said that he indeed received proposals in this regard. “An American porn actor wanted me to be his apprentice”, he ironically revealed.

Even though he wants to deal with this rumour with good humour, he does not hide that it created some issues. His mother, in particular, heard about it on 28 May, which also happened to be Mothers’ day. “She told me that she would have preferred another present”, declared the thirtysomething player. He says that he is not angry with his former coach and advises that it was “obviously too improbable to be true”.
