Whilst firmly impressing the Tottenham faithful with his performances over recent seasons, the player’s demeanour makes him far from your average Premier League footballer.
The Cameroonian defender previously admitted he plays football purely for the money and has rejected the claims of players who suggest otherwise.
‘I’m honest and I say what I think. If you don’t like, I don’t care, I know how I speak maybe will not help me, but I don’t care and I have too much confidence in me.’
The left back has recently started up a new charity, BA32, that seeks to promote education in a practical and interesting way.
‘When I make this foundation [it] is to give the opportunity to a young boy to understand that the education and the school is very important because you know when you are young you don’t see the real problems of the life; to sleep under the roof you have to pay every month.’
‘I prefer to be remembered about what I will do after football. People need help and that will be more interesting for me. People [will remember me] not just as a footballer, because I am not just a footballer.’
