Emmanuel Eboue has been offered a coaching role by Galatasaray after learning of the defender’s plight.
The ex-Arsenal star has been left with nothing after a bitter divorce battle with his wife Aurelie.
Eboue spends his days hiding from bailiffs, sometimes sleeps on the floor of a friend’s home, travels by bus and even cleans his clothes by hand because he has no washing machine.
However, the 34-year-old has been handed a lifeline by the manager of one of his former clubs with a coaching role with their Under-14s.
Galatasaray boss Fatih Terim told CNN: ‘We heard news about Eboue in the dressing room. I was informed there, we will do whatever we can to help my friend.”
