Emmanuel Eboue was probably the most versatile player in the Arsenal squad during his time at the Club.

In his first couple of seasons he was a raiding right back, appearing in the Champions League final against Barcelona just 16 months after joining from Beveren.

He went on to enjoy a stint on the right of midfield and even popped up in the centre of midfield and on the left flank.

Emmanuel played only once in his first season but emerged as a key member of Arsene Wenger's first-team squad for the next five campaigns.

The Ivory Coast star struggled towards the end of 2008 when a section of the crowd turned against him but he bounced back impressively to deliver his best performances for Arsenal.

Quick, skilful and effervescent, Eboue took the game to his opponents and became something of a cult hero at Emirates Stadium.

He left to join Galatasaray in the summer of 2011.
