Arsene Wenger Slams Emmanuel Eboue for Red Card at Tottenham

Sam DaltonCorrespondent IFebruary 13, 2009

Arsene Wenger is usually very protective of his players, but on Friday afternoon the Arsenal manager just couldn’t resist letting out his frustration toward his right-back Emmanuel Eboue for getting sent off in the North London derby last Sunday.

Eboue was dismissed for two yellow cards in the first half by referee Mike Dean at White Hart Lane, the second of which was for kicking Tottenham’s midfielder Luka Modric in an off-the-ball incident.

Wenger says Eboue needs to learn to control himself in future and not let the team down by picking up needless cards.

"He didn't sense how far you can go," Wenger said. "When he got the first card it was unfortunate, but the second one, you cannot complain about that."

"During the game he had problems in dealing with his frustrations," Wenger added. "We want to play a part in helping him to deal with that. The other players want to help their partners to deal with frustrations, but you are also responsible for the way in which you deal with it."

Eboue will now miss Monday night’s FA Cup fourth-round replay against Cardiff at the Emirates, and after previously being booed by Arsenal fans this season in the home game with Wigan, it might be wise for him to stay out of trouble for a while and not get himself sent off again too soon.
