Galatasaray Offer Former Player Emmanuel Eboue A Job

Christmas is supposed to be a time of merriment but on Christmas Eve it was revealed that former Arsenal full-back was having suicidal thoughts and struggling financially after problems in his personal life. Now Galatasaray have offered him a job.

In a frank interview with the Mirror former Arsenal full-back Emmanuel Eboue revealed that despite making plenty of money in his time as a footballer he was near penniless, running from bailiffs and sleeping on a friend's couch.

It all came from his messy divorce where is wife got all of his assets but to add to his woes the Ivorian has not seen his kids since June.

Speaking about his financial problems the defender said, "I can't afford the money to continue to have any lawyer or barrister. I am in the house but I am scared. Because I don't know what time the police will come."

However Christmas is all about goodwill to all men and Eboue's former club Galatasaray have offered a hand to the 34 year old.

According to CNN Turkey the club have offered Eboue the chance to become the team's under 14 assistant manager.
