Ex-Arsenal Star Launched his own Football Academy

Former Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue has launched his own football academy in his native Country Ivory Coast.

The 37 year old officially announced his retirement from football in October 2020 and has since spent time working with the Galatasaray academy in Turkey.

Eboue, is regarded by many as a cult figure at Arsenal and was part of the defence which helped set a Champions League record of eight straight clean sheets on their way to the 2006 final.

“Today I have left football and stopped playing, but I want to use what I have learned in football to help the young guys,” he said.

“To give them my knowledge. Without that help there would be no Emmanuel Eboue so thanks to their help and thanks to Jean-Marc Guillou because he helped me in the [ASEC] academy.”

Guillou, a close friend of Arsene Wenger and founder of the famed Abidjan football school Académie de Sol Beni, is credited for finding the likes of Eboue and Kolo Toure before they joined Arsenal’s former feeder club Beveren in Belgium.
