Assou-Ekotto unconcerned by Naughton

Published Add your comment

Benoit Assou-Ekotto does not believe Kyle Naughton is a threat to his place in the Tottenham team because he thinks the English defender is "not a real left-back".

Assou-Ekotto returned to training just over a month ago, but has only made one start - in Tottenham's FA Cup third round win over Coventry. Naughton, who normally operates at right-back, has impressed at left-back during Assou-Ekotto's absence. The 28-year-old thinks he is better suited to the position than Naughton, however.

"He's not a real left-back and I don't think he has the same left foot as me, so I'm not worried about that," Assou-Ekotto said. "I'm not worried because obviously I can do stuff with my left foot that he can't do."
