Feud continues between PSG star Mbappe & Ex-Tottenham fullback Assou-Ekotto

Former Tottenham Hotspur left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto has continued his feud with PSG whizkid Kylian Mbappe.

Assou-Ekotto, now with Ligue 1 club Metz, last week criticised the French teenager for being self aggrandising in regards to football in Africa.

"These European players of African origin, who have Africa in their hearts and want to help African sport, bla bla bla, while choosing to play for a European team," Assou-Ekotto wrote. "You make me laugh! It looks good when you have a good cause, though."

Mbappe then responded with a barb of his own, reminding Assou-Ekotto, 33, of an incident in which he head butted his Cameroon teammate during the 2014 World Cup.

"These European players of African origin, who have Africa in their hearts and want to help African sport, bla bla bla, while fighting with an international teammate back in 2014..." replied Mbappe. "You make me laugh... However, these are your values."

And now, Assou-Ekotto has fired back, stating on Twitter: "A lion that copies another lion becomes a monkey…"

The pair face off at the Parc de Princes next month.
