Ex-Arsenal player, Emmanuel Eboue has come out to laugh off reports claiming he is now poor. Recall that in 2017, Eboue was involved in a legal battle with ex-wife Aurelie, where he found himself on the losing side and was quoted by Sunday Mirror, describing himself as poor and homeless.
Speaking recently in an interview, Eboue revealed that his comments might’ve been misunderstood completely because he doesn’t know where that is coming from.
He added that after the saga, he simply returned to his properties in Africa, and he is currently living comfortably.
“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.”
“After that [divorce case], I left and returned back to Africa. I have my own properties in Africa and so I live with that.”
“When I hear people say Emmanuel Eboue lost everything, I laugh. I have properties in Ghana, I have properties in my home country [Ivory Coast].”
“I live very comfortably and I thank God. So when people keep talking and say Emmanuel Eboue doesn’t have anything, he can’t eat, doesn’t have a place to stay, it’s not true.”
