AWESOME! Classy Terim moves quickly to offer Eboue Galatasaray job

Galatasaray have moved quickly to offer support to former Arsenal fullback Emmanuel Eboue after his heartbreaking story this past week.

Eboue has admitted suicidal thoughts after finding himself penniless.

However, Gala have stepped in and offered him a job with the club's academy.

Gala boss Fatish Terim, who has taken over at the Istanbul club for the fourth time in his career, told CNN Turk that he would give the former Ivory Coast full-back the role of under-14 assistant coach at the club.

Terim said: "We heard news about Eboue in the dressing room, I was informed there, we will do whatever we can to help my friend."

Eboue has already been made aware of Terim's plans.

He said: "I would be very happy if Fatih gave me the duty in Galatasaray.

"Fatih Terim is my father, I love him very much, I do everything for him because I love him very much."
