Former Arsenal player Eboue wants to coach Ghanaian club Kotoko

Former Cote D’Ivoire international Emmanuel Eboue has expressed interest in coaching Ghanaian topflight Asante Kotoko who are currently without a head coach.

The former Arsenal defender hasn’t played a professional football match since May 2014 after leaving Turkish giants Galatasaray.

He faced complications following his move to Sunderland in 2015 and could not play for the club due to a one-year FIFA ban from all footballing activities for failing to pay his agent.

“I will be very happy if I coach Kotoko’s youth team. That is my dream. I want to tender in my CV at the club, Eboue said on Wednesday.

“I want to change the fortunes of Kotoko youth set-up.

“I know Kotoko for long when I was playing for Arsenal and also know how the fans react if they lose a match at home. I can stand any pressure.”

“Ghana has so many talents but how to use them has been a problem,” he added.

Eboue spent seven seasons at Arsenal and scored ten goals in 214 appearances.

An attempt to re-launch his career last year went futile when he failed a medical at Turk Ocagi Limasol, a Turkish Cypriot sports club.

Kotoko are the most successful Ghanaian club with 23 topflight titles. The Ghana Premier League is currently under indefinite suspension.
