Assou-Ekotto Headbutt ‘Unimaginable’

Cameroon coach Volker Finke said he will find out why Benoit Assou-Ekotto headbutted team-mate Benjamin Mou-kandjo during the 4-0 defeat by Croatia.

The pair were arguing in injury time before the Tottenham defender thrust his head at the forward. “It’s unimaginable. I saw this happen and I need to find out exactly what happened, why exactly these two players exploded,” said Finke.

“I hate to see that. It’s not the image of Cameroon I want to project.”

The incident almost continued in the tunnel, but injured striker Samuel Eto’o, who watched the match from the sidelines, stepped in the way of Assou-Ekotto, who spent last season on loan at QPR, helping them win promotion to the Premier League.

Cameroon’s second defeat in Brazil eliminates them from the tournament and means the African side have now failed to reach the second round of the World Cup in their last five attempts. — BBC
