Eboue looking for Arsenal exit

Arsenal boo-boy Emmanuel Eboue is seriously considering his Arsenal future following the abuse he recieved roundly during the Arsenal win over Wigan at the weekend at the Emirates. The mirror claims he is also frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities, not to mention the fact he's been playing out of position for an extended period of time. Wenger is currently doing all he can to pursuade the much loved player at the club, to stay and prove the fans and Eboue's critics wrong. However according to the report, it has had little effect. Wenger has since blasted the notion that players who earn vast amounts of money are not susceptible to mistakes:"If you look at it brutally, of course they have a point if you compare the wages," said Wenger. "But I don't think he makes mistakes because he's well paid."It's part of the game and the only thing you can say is that the hostile reaction provoked more bad passes from him."If you divide the wages by 100 from when I played, I still made bad passes and if you multiplied my wages by 100 I would still have made bad passes. Once you're on the pitch, how much you are paid doesn't play a big part."It's about how much you want to do well and how much you want to win".Wenger is correct in theory, however how many mistakes can one make over and over again before being labelled hopeless, a word closely associated with Eboue almost ever since he lost his place at right back. It's no co-incidence, he is a right back. It's the bottom line, and he is a decent right back at that, he's not the best positionally but it is without doubt his best position. I've never been Eboue's biggest fan. I felt physically sick however seeing a grown man coming off roundly booed by his own fans, wiping off a tear with his head down - I was embarassed to be associated with such fans. It wasn't a section - it was the majority of Arsenal fans at the Emirates that day. However I do feel a move could benefit both parties, I can't see Eboue coming back all guns blazing, as much as I would love to - I can't. He's a sensitive guy like Wenger said and it's not easy to come back a few days later away at Porto and blow everyone away with a magical performance. I can only see more mistakes from the man, more confidence loss, and to be honest he shouldn't stand for what happened to him at the weekend, he's more than entitled to seek a move. It's the best thing for Emmanuel Eboue, and the best thing for Arsenal.
