He had been patiently fielding questions from dozens of journalists who knew next to nothing about him, so no wonder the FA Cup's newest hero, Leyton Orient striker Jonathan Tehoue, was not in the least bit surprised when he was told that Arsene Wenger hadn't heard of him either - well not before his last-gasp equaliser against the Gunners anyway.
There cannot be many French footballers that Wenger's famed encyclopedic knowledge of the game does not cover but, to be fair to the Arsenal boss, Tehoue's own manager at Orient, Russell Slade, was not completely clued up on the 26-year-old striker either.
Slade was unable to clarify when quizzed about Tehoue's (now corrected) Wikipedia entry, which had him down as the cousin of Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue. Tehoue himself had to clear that one up (they are good friends and share Ivorian heritage but are not related).
It turns out Tehoue also hangs around with a few of the sizeable French contingent in the Gunners squad - he is mates with Abou Diaby and has known Alex Song since they played at SC Bastia together. Perhaps one of them could have warned Wenger about what he is capable of, because he certainly knows all about him now.
