Benoit Assou-Ekotto has claimed that he would like to stay at Tottenham for the rest of his career.
After a tough start to life at White Hart Lane, the Cameroon international has cemented his place in the team at left-back under Harry Redknapp.
“Team spirit here is exceptional under Harry,” he told the News of the World.
“I want to stay at Spurs for life.
“I would have signed for six years! I love playing in the Premier League, it’s the best league in the world. Why would I want to play anywhere else?”
“When you are out for 18 months, people forget about you,” he said.
“When I eventually returned some of my team-mates did not know who I was. Alan Hutton asked Jermaine Jenas, ‘Who’s this?’
“Nobody remembered me, but it made me hungrier to establish myself as a first-team regular.”
