Ekotto Reveals Truth About Head Butt

Cameroon fullback Benoit Assou-Ekotto revealed why he headbutted teammate, Benjamin Moukandjo, in the side's 4-0 loss to Croatia.
 
The Queens Park Rangers fullback was involved in a heated confrontation with Moukandjo, before headbutting his teammate in the emphatic loss.
 
Assou-Ekotto eventually explained what drove him to headbutt his Lion' teammate.
 
"It all started with the first match against Mexico," said Assou-Ekott
 
"Moukandjo was on my flank, he tried to dribble past two opponents and lost the ball.
 
"I told him he should pass it to me. He replied I was right. The same situation happened against Croatia again. Everyone can make a mistake. But when I told him again, he replied: "Get off my back!"
 
"I could not accept his reaction. There was so much frustration in that match.
 
"Now people take me for an idiot. I could not control my temper. If the score was 0-0, it would have not happened.
 
"When we went back to the changing-room, Samuel Eto’o talked to me, but I was so angry that I didn’t admit I was wrong.
 
"The next day, we met with Moukandjo again during breakfast and we shook hands.
 
"That kind of thing can happen when a team doesn’t work right. I didn’t think. Millions of people were watching at the match, and a lot of kids.
 
"I have not been threatened with a ban from the group. I am a human being and I can get upset just like anyone.”
