Benoit Assou-Ekotto was released by Tottenham Hotspur yesterday after nine years at the club and the Cameroon international was pleased with the developments.

The 30-year-old, who has not played for the club since May 2013, was earning £40,000 a week despite not even training with the first team.

After the news broke, the Cameroon full-back brilliantly changed his Twitter profile, to this image with the word 'Freedom'.

Assou-Ekotto made 200 appearances and scored four goals during his time with the North London club.
