Jack Wilshere fondly remembers former Arsenal team-mate Emmanuel Eboue
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has been reminiscing about former team-team Emmanuel Eboue ahead of a reunion this weekend.
The Gunners face Eboue’s Galatasaray in the Emirates Cup on Sunday. The Ivory Coast international was a firm favourite with colleagues and fans alike before leaving for Turkey in 2011.
Wilshere told the matchday programme it will be good to have Eboue back in north London
He said: “He was a special character.
“He was good around the dressing room. Even if he was upset that he wasn’t playing, he kept everyone’s spirits up and was a happy guy.
“He is missed and it will be good to see him around the place. A few of the fans will be happy to see him as well.”
More than a few we reckon, Jack!
