Arsenal legend Wright shocked by Eboue treatment in Turkey

Arsenal legend Ian Wright was shocked by the treatment of Emmanuel Eboue by Turkish 'fans' on the weekend.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "My heart went out to Emmanuel Eboue when I saw the stick thrown at him by Besiktas fans over the weekend.

"The former Arsenal full-back, now at Galatasaray, was subjected to all sorts of abuse and had missiles chucked at him in another example of what's wrong with football.

"But once again I think this is a case of FIFA and UEFA reaping what they have sown because of the pitiful fines handed out over racism.

"In Turkey, as in other places, it almost seems trendy to be racist at the moment and people are joining in because the punishment never seems to fit the crime."
