Filed under: Sports — kikenileda @ 12:18 PM


Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp will take no further action
against Benoit Assou-Ekotto following his altercation with a fan after
Sunday's match with Wolves.

Assou-Ekotto confronted the supporter
next to the tunnel as he left the pitch following Spurs' 1-0 defeat
against Mick McCarthy's side. The 25-year-old had to be pulled away by
Spurs assistant boss Joe Jordan, who then led the Cameroon
international down the tunnel.

"There won't be any punishment," said Redknapp, who did not see the incident.

north-London club revealed on Monday that Assou-Ekotto will meet the
fan, who is believed to be Norwegian, to try and resolve the matter.
And Redknapp said that he will not fine the player and is happy that
the meeting will draw a line under the matter.

He added: "Joe
(Jordan) was there and he said it was nothing. This guy came over, he
was foreign. He said something to Benoit and Benoit reacted to it.

"Whatever he said, that was it and there was no violence or anything.

"Joe pulled him away and his girlfriend pulled the other guy away, whoever he was."

    What’s wrong with Cameroonian players of this generation with their ruddish behavior. If its not Song, it’s Nkong, and now Ekotto. I hope they don’t carry this attitude to South Africa. The last thing we need is been sanctioned for meaningless acts.
