I’m Not Poor And Homeless – Eboue

I’m Not Poor And Homeless – Eboue

Former Arsenal defender, Emmanuel Eboue has debunked reports circulating in the media that he’s currently living in abject poverty.

Recall that in 2017, the Ivorian was involved in a legal battle with his former wife, Aurelie, where he ended up losing some of his assets.

Eboue, who is now retired from football, made 79 appearances for Ivory Coast, scoring three goals, and played at two World Cups (2006 and 2010) and five Africa Cup of Nations.

At club level, he spent eight seasons at Arsenal after arriving from Belgian side Beveren in 2004, before moving to Turkey in 2011, where he won three Turkish Super Lig titles and five domestic trophies with Galatasaray.

However, Eboue, who was unhappy with a report published in UK Mirror that he was poor and homeless, said that he may have been misunderstood.

“When [people] say Emmanuel Eboue lost everything, it’s not nice. Because I had a divorce [case] and they [court] said my wife won, they gave her all my properties – my two houses, money, and the cars that I had in England.

“I wasn’t worried about it because I expected that she was going to use it to take care of my children. When they [court] said that, I was very disappointed… To be honest, for the first time, I was very down but after that, I prayed and forgot about all of that,” the 37-year-old said according to Citi Sports.

He added: “After that [divorce case], I left and returned back to Africa. I have my own properties in Africa and so I live with that.”
