August 29, 2012
The former Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue has said that Galatasaray are well prepared for a good run in the Champions League this season. After many troubles in the Turkish league, Galatasaray will finally be able to participate in the Champions League this season. The former Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue moved to the Turkish club last season after sealing his € 3.5 million move. He was extremely instrumental in helping the club lift the title last season after he made 33 appearances in all competitions. He also created three goals for his teammates, while scoring three himself during last season.
Emmanuel Eboue was speaking ahead of the match with Fenerbahce in the Super Cup encounter. He has said that the Super Cup encounter is extremely important for the fans because it is a match with their arch rivals. As a result, the club will be taking the match extremely seriously. He has also said that the club needs to be victorious in the match in order to grow into the new season with great confidence due to the fact that Galatasaray will be playing in the Champions League this season. Emmanuel Eboue has said that his teammates are extremely well-prepared for the group stages of the Champions League.
“The match [Super Cup] is important to our fans, to us and our community, at the end of the day this is a cup and we must take all cups seriously. If you lose your focus you lose everything. We are returning from a long break and have to get back into condition. Training is going well, it’s something we all take seriously, we are about to enter into one of the most important competition in football, the Champions League. We have been playing friendlies against strong opposition, our match against Fiorentina is a prime example of this,” said Eboue.
