Having a local professional sports star for a dad can make kids popular, but if he's taken out of the game, they might find themselves made fun of.
Axar.az reports citing sputniknews.com.
34-year-old former Arsenal star Emmanuel Eboue has admitted that schoolmates bulled his son after they learned that he was suspended for a year by FIFA.
"At school, you know how the children talk. They were laughing at him and saying, 'Your Dad was banned by FIFA and will not play anymore'. So it was very, very difficult," Eboue told the Sunday Mirror in an exclusive interview.
He also expressed sorrow about the fact that he hasn't seen his three kids since he got divorced in June.
Eboue was banned from football for failing to pay out an alleged one-million-euro debt to his former agent Sebastien Boisseau.
Right now, Eboue's his ill-health prevents him from returning to the sport. His son Mathis, despite being teased by schoolmates, plays for Arsenal's academy.
