Former Ivorian international Emmanuel Eboue has thanked the Turkish club Galatasaray reserving special mention for its manager Fatih Terim after they offered him a job following the bitter, suicidal divorce with Wife.
Following the publication over the weekend of Eboue’s harrowing experience with his marriage which has all but ended in a bitter divorce, Galatasaray boss Fatih Terim, who has taken over at the Istanbul club for the fourth time in his career, 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”. He was quoted saying.
Galatasaray have gone on to launch a campaign helping former players with troubles, with club legends Hasan Şaş and Necati Ateş sharing messages of support for the Ivorian, who now plays for Turkish/Cypriot side Turk Ocagi Limasol.
Eboue moved to Galatasaray in 2011 from Arsenal. He spent five years between 2011 and 2016 making 77 appearances and scoring four goals.
