Posted on 3 December 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

ACTOR…If you were an actor, who would your leading lady be?
It would be Nicole Kidman because I like her movie Moulin Rouge, it is one of my favourites.

BOREDOM…What do you take on a long journey to keep you occupied/amused?
Usually I take my CD player, but it is broken at the moment so I have to get a new one. For the moment I just speak with Fredi Kanoute and all the players who can speak French.

CARTOONS…Who is your favourite cartoon character?
I like Beep-Beep and Coyote….Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote.

DESTINATION…What is your favourite town/city and why?
Paris. I was born in Paris and, like London, there are so many things to do. But Paris is smaller than London so it is easy to get around.

ELECTRONIC…Are you a gadgets person and what is the most hi-tec piece of equipment you own?
Apart from my mobile, probably an iPod.

FAMOUS…What's the best/worst thing about being famous?
The best thing is when you see the kids, when they meet you and shake your hand, how happy they are. I think it is really good to be able to make people happy. The worst thing is when people 'spy' on you and talk a lot about you, but don't know you.

GROUNDHOG…Which day would you like to repeat over and over again?
My first selection for France for the Under-18 team, it was in Paris and my family was there and I was very proud. We lost the match against Spain 2-1, but it is still a good memory.

HARASS…What annoys you, or winds you up?
People when they are rude about me. I know my English isn't perfect, but when I try to speak with someone and they don't try to understand me, that annoys me.

ICON…Who is your all-time favourite sports person?
I don't really have one, but I really like Lilian Thuram. I try to watch him in games to learn from him.

JACKET POTATO…What filling would you have in a jacket potato
I have never tried jacket potato. I see people here and they put butter, cheese and beans inside, so maybe one day I will try this.

KARAOKE…If you had to sing a song, which one would it be?
For the moment, it is 'Burn' from Usher. I am singing this all the time in the dressing room and Jamie says he doesn't understand what I am singing!

LUCKY…Do you have a lucky charm or a superstition?
I have something lucky, something that I wear during the game. It is for tying my shinpads and has my name, number and my wife's name on.

MOVIES…What's the last film you saw?
At the cinema? The last one of the Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King.

NERVOUS…What are you scared of?
I'm not really scared of anything, maybe a little bit nervous about heights.

ORIENT EXPRESS…What's the best journey you've ever been on?
It was last summer, when I was in New York with my wife. It was my first time over there and it was really good. We did everything, all the tourist things.

PARANORMAL…Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever seen a ghost?
Yes, I think there is something, not ghosts, but spirits, I believe. I haven't seen any though.
QUICK…Who's the quickest player you've ever played against?
Last time I think it was Thierry Henry, but Jermain also is really quick. In France, it would be Sydney Govou of Lyon and Ludovic Giuly who is at Barcelona now, but was at Monaco.

RECIPE…When did you last cook…and what did you cook?
Not a long time ago, it was some prawns, with some rice and onions. I like to cook.

SOUNDS…What did you listen to in the car today?
It was some hip-hip music by Method Man. I have six CDs in my car and this one is very good.

TOMORROW…What do you always put off until tomorrow?
Papers, you know for the bank and bills, any kind of paperwork.

UNEXPECTED…What's the biggest surprise you've ever had?
When I have heard that Tottenham wants to sign me. They came to a game and we lost to Bordeaux, so I was really surprised!

VANILLA…What's your favourite ice cream flavour?
Hagen Daas, Macadamia.

WITHOUT…Is there anything that you just can't live without?
When I have people around me, my family, my wife, I think I can't live without them.

XYLOPHONE…Have you ever played a musical instrument?
Yes, I did, at school I played the flute. I was quite good!

YELLOW CARD…When did you last get a yellow card, and did you deserve it?
It was in France, and I think I didn't deserve it, but I don't remember.

ZOO…What's your favourite animal at the zoo?
I really like the lions and all the big cats.
