Eboue pelted by objects in Turkey

Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Eboue was repeatedly pelted by missiles during Galatasaray's 0-0 draw with arch-rivals Besiktas on Sunday.

The home fans at Besiktas' Inonu Stadium threw a series of objects, including water bottles and lighters, whenever the Ivory Coast international went near the touchline.

Eboue, who signed for Galatasaray in the summer after spending six seasons with Arsenal, appealed in vain for the match officials to intervene as the missiles rained down, but was not badly hurt.

During his time in the Turkish Super Lig, the 28-year-old has attracted allegations that he is a diver and it is thought a section of the Besiktas crowd were aggrieved at what they deemed was an over-reaction by Eboue following a tackle on the midfielder.

Eboue has had a mixed opening to his career in Turkey, featuring in all but one game for third-placed Galatasaray, although has been substituted in almost half of those.
