Eboue nears contract extension
Emmanuel Eboue is beginning to win over his critics at the Emirates Stadium. Three goals in as many outings suggest so, but there are worries that these may be his final performances for the club.
Like Van Persie, the Ivorian only has until May to extend his Arsenal stay and as a result, there has been rumours about a move to Italy for Arsenal’s no. 27.
Wenger though, has broken the silence on Eboue’s future, and confirmed that the 25-year-old will have more to serve to the fans than just his past two weeks of rare bliss.
According to the manager, paper works in the contract extension have been formalized.
“We have already tied up Eboue’s contract – that has been done for a long time.” Wenger said
Arsene also lauded the reemergence of the versatile midfielder and suggested his attitude can be very exemplary to the misfiring Bendtner.
“Of course Eboue’s an example [for Bendtner],” He said
“Bendtner will [turn it around] I am not worried about that, I was more worried about Eboue at one stage. Fans want performances and that is the only way we have to respond.
