Just hours after his poverty story went viral on social media, former Arsenal FC star Emmanuel Eboue, just got lucky again.

Eboue’s poverty story was a bitter one. He was supposed to return to the Premier League with Sunderland but the deal fell through and his woes were compounded when he was banned for twelve months by FIFA. He blamed his misfortune on his wife and those who helped manage his finances saying they gave him bad advises.

His story worsened after he was ordered by a judge to transfer his remaining Enfield home to his wife after their divorce.

According to Eboue, he was considering taking his life before he was offered will now to be an assistant coach for Galatasaray’s U-14 team.


The footballer who said he now hides from bailiffs and sleeps on friend’s floor, will earn a decent salary that befits his standing from the club, and is expected to work his way to the top.

Galatasaray boss Fatih Terim, told CNN Turk that he would give the former Ivory Coast full-back the role of under-14 assistant coach at the club.

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, 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” Eboue added.
