Emmanuel Eboue: I am still in love with Arsenal

Emmanuel Eboue has spoken of his “love” for Arsenal as the Ivory Coast defender prepares to return to north London for this weekend’s Emirates Cup.

The 30-year-old spent six seasons at the club before sealing a transfer to Galatasaray two years ago but revealed that he is still in contact with many of his friends at the club.

And Eboue admits he cannot wait to return to his former club when his current employers take part in the Emirates Cup this weekend.

“I still speak to several of the guys regularly – Bacary Sagna and Abou Diaby for example – and sometimes Arsene Wenger too,” Eboue said in the Emirates Cup weekend souvenir programme.

“I always want to hear news from the club because I am a big supporter of them. I’m a Galatasaray player now, but I am still in love with Arsenal and I always watch their games.

“The club only did good things for me, and I never had any trouble from anybody.

“My only bad day was that game against Wigan, but that was something you must be ready for as football player. I will never, ever forget Arsenal or its supporters and I cannot wait to see them again.

“They all did so many good things for me, and it’s going to be a brilliant experience.”
