The footballer has been in the news recently after he revealed to Daily Mirror that he’s hit a rough patch, including losing a divorce battle to his ex-wife, Aurelie, to whom the court has asked he sign all his assets.
The footballer, who said he would accept help from anywhere, has reportedly been offered a decent salary by Galatasaray after the club’s manager Fatih Terim saw quotes about his meltdown.
The story of Eboue’s financial and familial woes was headlines over the weekend after the U.K. Mirror reported that the club-less defender was on the brink of suicide after losing all his earnings in a bitter divorce case.
A soccer website, Futbolarena Turkey, said Eboue will begin work as he aims to obtain a coaching licence. The Istanbul side will rope him in, give him an accommodation and a decent salary as he works his way up the ladder
