Galatasaray have gone on to launch a campaign helping former players with troubles, with club legends Hasan Şaş and Necati Ateş sharing messages of support for the Ivorian, who now plays for Turkish/Cypriot side Turk Ocagi Limasol.
As a result of his current plight, the Yellow-Red fans started an online petition under the #Eboue hashtag.
Eboue was banned from football for failing to pay out an alleged one-million-euro debt to his former agent Sebastien Boisseau.
Eboue will be given the role once he has his coaching badge. During this time he'll remain at the club's Florya facilities and will be retained as a salaried employee.
Eboue, who said he had been forced to watch Arsenal in a local pub because he can not afford the television subscription fees, said he was determined not to follow in the path of former Ivory Coast teammate Steve Gohouri, whose body was found in the Rhine river in 2015. "Very, very hard. The money I earned, I sent it to my wife for our children".
However, with his former wife Aurelie being awarded of all the couple's assets, he has been forced to dodge police and bailiffs following a court order - insisting he hand over his home in Enfield to her.
Reliance Communications announces new debt cut plan, with no write-offs
There won't be any debt-to-equity conversion or any write-offs for lenders and bond holders as per the plan, he told reporters. Ambani said that enterprise value of the new RCom is around Rs 15,000 crore as per projections by Credit Suisse.
"When I see friends on TV that I played with or against I say to myself "I should still be there". I sent seven million back home.
He told the Mirror: "I covered my face and I went there".
The former Ivory Coast global who gained 79 caps for his country is remarkably free of bitterness at his former partner Aurelie - but blames previous advisors for Federation Internationale de Football Association imposing their damaging 12-month playing ban on him. He was depressed a lot. He was playing for Wigan in England. He blamed his misfortune on his wife and those who helped manage his finances saying they gave him bad advises.
"I pray every day". Only he can help take these thoughts from my mind. I continue to thank God.
Reports in Turkey suggest that Galatasaray will employ former defender, Emmanuel Eboue as U-14 assistant coach. "I was informed there, we will do whatever we can to help my friend".
