Frustrated Eboue 'could leave Arsenal'
Tuesday 16 June 2009
Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue could be on his way out of the Emirates after revealing he is unhappy at the Barclays Premier League club.
The Ivory Coast international, who can also play on the right wing, has grown frustrated by his failure to hold down a regular starting spot.
And, despite only having signed a new deal last summer, the 26-year-old admits he could be set to leave England.
"It would be hard," Eboue told France Football. "But I think it would be harder to experience another season like this one, too far off the pitch...
"In any case, if I leave Arsenal, it would be for another league because it is out of the question that I develop elsewhere in England."
Eboue moved to Arsenal from Beveren in January 2005 and became a first-team regular in the second half of the following season.
However, inconsistent form saw him overtaken by Bacary Sagna and Theo Walcott in the pecking order.
He was booed by the Gunners fans back in December after coming off the bench against Wigan and was himself substituted.
