Benoit Assou-Ekotto spoke of his pride after joining the 200 club at Spurs.

Benoit's pride

The full-back clocked up his 200th appearance in all competitions for us in Sunday's memorable 3-1 win against Manchester City at the Lane.

Benoit joined us from Ligue 1 side RC Lens in June, 2006 and has been a regular feature in the team since the 2008-09 campaign.

"Six years ago I didn’t think I would play 200 games for this club, now the next target is to make it to 300 games!" said Benoit.

"I don’t think there are many players who make 200 games (for the same team).

"In football, there are not many players who play six years at the same club. I’m very proud of that."

Look out for more from Benoit in May's Hotspur magazine - out Friday!
