Arsenal veteran, Kolo Toure has urged Arsenal fans to get behind Gunners whipping boy Emmanuel Eboue the next time he turns out for the team .... which could be as early as Wednesday.
Eboue suffered quite horrendously at the hands of the home fans on Saturday when his substitution was actually cheered (which I think was worse than the actual booing) and was followed up with a chorus of boos.
However his friend and fellow countryman, Kolo Toure has lept to the defence of the rightwinger (central midfielder, rightback, left back) asking Gooners to provide some positive support and assuring us all that Eboue wants to do well for the club.
'Eboue had an injury for six weeks and this was his first game," said the centre back.
"We had some injuries and that is why the boss put him on and he played well. At the end he had a difficult time but we need to give him credit because he was not 100 per cent however he had to play because of our injuries and he did well.'
"The fans gave him a hard time and that is unusual at Arsenal. I was surprised because normally our fans are [always] nice. I think the tension was really high and that is why they were hard. In the end we had three points and that is good. He will have a chat with the boss and I think he will come back.'
"We need him and he is a strong boy. I`ll call him, he will also have a chat with the manager on Monday and then he will be fine.'
"I just want to tell the fans that he is a great lad, he loves the Club and wants to do his best for the Club. Sometimes, when you come back from a six-week injury you cannot give 200 per cent. We hope that next time they will help him to come back. That is the only way to behave."
