Eboue training with Hungarian side Ferencvaros logo 29-06-2017

Emmanuel Eboue is training with Hungarian side Ferencvaros to maintain his fitness after his year-long FIFA-imposed ban from football was lifted, Goal understands.

The 34-year-old former Arsenal defender was unable to play or train with any club since March last year after he was suspended by FIFA for failing to pay a €1 million debt to his former agent, Sebastien Boisseau.

At one point the Ivorian right-back was training with semi-professional side Enfield Town where he kept himself fit and in a recent interview described his ban as “a bit like being in prison where you can't do anything."

Eboue became a free agent in 2015 after leaving Turkish side Galatasaray and saw his move to Sunderland cut short just a month after signing in early March 2016, where he was released without playing a single game.

Now training with the self-proclaimed ‘most popular team in Hungary’, Eboue reached out to his former Sunderland fitness coach Peter Friar who is currently head physiotherapist at the Budapest-based outfit, and requested to train with the side.

There is no indication that Eboue will be offered a contract by the Hungarian team and it is understood that he is hopeful of securing a move to a top-flight side in England before the start of next season.
