Assou-Ekotto does not see Tottenham team-mate Naughton as a threat

Benoit Assou-Ekotto does not believe Kyle Naughton is a threat to his place in the Tottenham team. Naughton, who normally operates at right-back, has impressed at left-back during Assou-Ekotto's absence, meaning the Cameroonian has had to settle for a place on the bench in the last two Premier League games.

The 28-year-old, who has been Tottenham's first-choice left-back for the last six seasons, 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."
