Eboue Thinks of Leaving – Well Go!
Eboue has come out in the press and said he is not sure of his future at Arsenal. He has stated he wants to play or he will leave. He has even given us a list of teams that are interested in him.
He told France-Football, “Leaving would be hard, but I think experiencing another season like this one would be even harder, spending more time away from the pitch.”
“At the end of the day, if I leave Arsenal, I will move to another league because playing somewhere else in England is out of the question.”
Clearly he is not happy sitting on the bench and this is good, but if he opened his eyes he would realise that there will be no tears from Arsenal fans if he left. Eboue may have turned the corner following his nadir against Wigan but this player is not worthy of starting for Arsenal. He will not dislodge Sagna and he is not good enough to play as a midfielder. He runs well with the ball, but his final pass leaves a lot to be desired. Eboue took on a cult following in the latter months but this was more in jest than out of true love for the player.
If Arsenal can sell Eboue for around £5 million that will be a great bit of business for Arsenal. If Eboue leaving means that either Kerrea Gilbert or Gavin Hoyte move one step closer to first team football or Wenger uses the £5 million to buy Manchester City’s Micah Richards, I would be very happy.
