RICHES TO RAGS: Emmanuel Eboue admits going broke has left him close to suicide in mighty fall from Arsenal days. Watch The Video Below

Emmanuel Eboue used to make millions in the Premier League but is now sleeping on his friend’s floor, washing his clothes by hand and hiding from bailiffs.

In an interview with the Sunday Mirror, Eboue told how he lost a divorce battle that left his wife Aurelie with all of their assets and how he has no contact with his daughters Clara, 14, and Maeva, 12.

He said: “Every day I wash my jeans, my clothes, everything. My hands are hard. As though I have been working on a farm.

“Sometimes I shut off the lights because I don’t want people to know that I am inside. I put everything behind the door.

“I am in the house but I am scared. Because I don’t know what time the police will come.

“I look back and say ­‘Emmanuel, you have been naive… why didn’t you think about that before?’ It is hard.

“The money I earned, I sent it to my wife for our children.
