QPR defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto has denied he stayed up all-night playing Grand Theft Auto V ahead of their clash with Brighton last night.

The Cameroon international tweeted on GTA V release night, saying: ‘Im wake up since 1h! Thanks GTA 5! Hv a good day mate lol.'

Many QPR fans were angered with his tweet, as it was just hours before his highly anticipated debut against Brighton. However, the left back insisted that people perceived his tweet wrongly, as he insisted that what he meant to say that was up for 1 hour, as oppose to being up since 1am.

He tweeted today: "I said since 1h not since 1am... People dont no read lol."

Benoit Assou-Ekotto did came off the bench in the 23rd minute to make his QPR debut in a goalless draw at Loftus Road.
