Recall that Eboue who has been out of professional football for two-years, went broke following a nasty divorce that saw him lost everything. 

Speaking to Canal, he said: 'All I want is to return to football once more. I still possess ability.I would even go to places like Baghdad or Pakistan just to play football. I don't care where.  

'I live with my bags already packed, as there is a chance I could be kicked out of my house.I don't have anyone by my side nowadays. I feel abandoned. I used to get on well with my children and my family, and now I am completely alone.'

According to reports, Eboue may be unable to afford legal representation for the Arson case following a failed appeal against his divorce.
