Former Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue has been offered a little respite from his domestic issues after the Ivorian was handed an assistant coaching role at Turkish giants Galatasaray.
Eboue’s pathetic story has been in the public space for the better part of the last one week following the news that the former Ivorian international defender has fallen on hard times and also considered suicide at some stage.
The 34-year old further revealed that he considered suicide after financial mismanagement and a bitter divorce left him penniless, homeless and estranged from his three children since the summer.
One of his former clubs, Galatasaray, has however revealed that they would hand him an assistant coaching role with the U14 team.
While speaking about his matter with CNN Turk, Galatasaray boss Fatih Terim, who is in his 4th spell at the club, confirmed the new development.
In his words, Terim said: “We heard news about Eboue in the dressing room, I was informed there, we will do whatever we can to help my friend.”
Reacting to the heartwarming news, Eboue said: “I would be very happy if Fatih gave me the duty in Galatasaray.”
“Fatih Terim is my father, I love him very much, I do everything for him because I love him very much.” he concluded.
