Eboue: How I Lost All My Millions To My Ex-Wife

Eboue: How I Lost All My Millions To My Ex-Wife

Former Arsenal star Emmanuel Eboue has revealed how he lost millions of pounds of his earnings and gone from a rich football star to a poor man on the brink of suicide.

He is seeking divine intervention to prevent him from taking his own life.
“I want God to help me,” Eboue told the Mirror. “Only he can help take these thoughts from my mind.”

Ivorian defender Eboue 34, narrated to the Mirror his heartbreaking story of financial, mostly pointing the finger at his estranged wife Aurelie and his own naivety.Eboue told the British tabloid that he lost all his money to Aurelie, who he claimed also handled his finances, in their divorce settlement and has been ordered to also give up his house in London to the ex-wife.


It is now three weeks since a deadline passed for Eboue to surrender ownership of the North London home he used to share with Aurelie and the fallen star could be forcibly ejected.

Eboue and his wife lived there before Eboue bought a mansion – which Aurelie has now put on the market.

So Eboue now awaits the knock that will see him ordered to leave at any time.

“I can’t afford the money to continue to have any lawyer or barrister,” Eboue told the Mirror.

“I am in the house but I am scared. Because I don’t know what time the police will come.

“Sometimes I shut off the lights because I don’t want people to know that I am inside. I put everything behind the door.

“My own house. I suffered to buy my house but I am now scared.

“I am not going to sell my clothes or sell what I have. I will fight until the end because it is not fair.”

Eboue made millions of pounds at Arsenal and then more than £1.5million a year at Turkish side Galatasaray but admits he was never given ­guidance to manage his finances.

“I look back and say ­‘Emmanuel, you have been naive… why didn’t you think about that before?’ It is hard,” he added.

“Very, very hard. The money I earned, I sent it to my wife for our children.

“In Turkey I earned eight million euros. I sent seven million back home. Whatever she tells me to sign, I sign.

“She is my wife. The problems with FIFA  (when he was banned for a pay dispute with an agent) were because of people advising me. People who are supposed to care. But it was because of them FIFA banned me.”

Eboue surrendered his expensive cars among assets to his wife, and now relies on London public transport.

The Mirror repprts that Eboue splits his time between the Enfield house and the home of a ­confidante he calls his “sister” – Yasmin Razak.

He often sleeps on a mattress on her living room floor.

But even watching TV – and seeing the likes of former team-mate Thierry Henry as a football pundit – triggers negative thoughts.

He adds: “When I see Thierry I feel happy for him but ashamed of my own situation.

“When I see friends on TV that I played with or against I say to myself ‘I should still be there’. It’s hard to watch them.”

    • You are right but some footballers from Africa marry white ladies so they can be documented for a permanent resident permit thereby securing their stay in Europe after football career. Nevertheless, it is a great error on their part and most of them pays heavily for it especially when there is a divorce.

  • That’s why it’s very dangerous to fall in love with a white girl.

  • There is something behind his downfall he should go back to his root. Maybe he disappointed their childhood friends from his native land when he was nobody

      You are right what people dont know is that over 75% of what happen in the physical is the manifestation of what has already be concluded in the spiritual.

  • God will surely interfere Amen…Stay strong bro Lord Almighty is your strength.

  • Hillary benedict 5 years ago

    Well Ebuoe, ur mistake is not marring a white lady, rather allowing the girl to run ur finances. Even if she is a black woman, geting back ur money would always be difficult because she would register everything u have with her name which u foolishly signed. As an experienced footballer, i believ ur mates can help u stand again. Soo Sorry!

    Eboue, Call on the lord Jesus now! and stop talking chidishly! , casting blame. “In Turkey I earned eight million euros.I sent seven million back home.Whatever she tells me to sign, I sign”. Which kind love be that!!? . It is not still too late. Ask for God’s mercy and take responsibility for ur actions. Then move on with life!

  • Eboue you can start coaching course is not too late.
    But you should have some cash n investment in Africa to fall back to.
    Call your FA u start with under 17 team.
    But now that you are broke I doubt if they will give u that job.
    Well go Africa go control juju if the woman go forget d divorce issues or go church.

    white prostitutes- that’s why you have marriage contracts: that stupid feaces eurrier will go to hell and be rotten. let her know that this world is “empty” no one is there. it seems you were also tired by your sterving mum and relatives ‘ hope they are fine!! fuck you*1000000000%eurier you will burst!!!!

  • “In Turkey I earned eight million euros. I sent seven million back home. Whatever she tells me to sign, I sign.”

    Where is the home you referred to? England or France? You call those places home? Very big mistake. You should have gone to your village to pick a God-fearing lady.

    All is not lost. You’re still young. Get up and move. Let me suggest a business: Set up a consultancy to advice successful sportsmen and women on how to manage their fortune.
