Galatasary of Turkey and Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire defender, Emmanuel Eboue, has boasted that his country will eat the Super Eagles of Nigeria like ‘super fried chicken’ when they meet on Sunday in one of the quarter finals matches in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations holding in South Africa.
Eboue, who through his twitter handle @TheRealEboue, congratulated Nigeria shortly after the Super Eagles defeated Ethiopia to reach the knock-out stages but was quick to caution Nigeria not to celebrate to much as the Elephants are coming for them.
The former Arsenal player maintained that Eagles were no match to his side. His first tweet read: “Congrat to Nigeria. Don’t celebrate too much cuz we are coming for you. We are going to eat you like fufu”.
Minutes later, the Ivorian defender tweeted again: “Sorry guys, point of correction. We are going to eat Nigeria like #SuperFriedChickens.”
From then on, it has been an unending tweet tirade on not just the Eagles as a team but Nigeria in its entirety, a situation that has seen some twitter users arguing that Eboue was being impersonated.
Some of the tweets read (unedited):
“@TheRealEboueI see ppl saying I hv pride by saying we wud eat Nigeria like fried chickens, it’s not pride guys, it’s hardwork & passion 4 my country”
“@TheRealEboue: In Nigeria team, some of your best strikers like martins, yakubu & odewinge are not in the team. Why? No peace, passion, & humility”
“@TheRealEboue: Ivory has some of the top players in d world, and when our country calls. We go. We go back home and play. Nobody is a big boy. So shut it”
“@TheRealEboue: A country where mikel obi is your best player & captain . Out of 150million people. You sure have a problem super chickens”
“@TheRealEboue: With all due respect 2 mikel, he is a good player but not Okocha, Samson,yekini,Oliseh, adepoju. Your football association is a joke”
“@TheRealEboue: When keshi was in Togo, he dropped adebayor. He is in Nigeria and drops the best player. He is a manager he should be able to work on their ego”
@TheRealEboue: I have said enough on this matter. I was so angry. Speak to me when your national television can broadcast the game. Have a good day
@TheRealEboue:Keep fooling yourself and calling yourselfs the giant of africa. You are nothing but the soil of Africa we all walk on now.
@TheRealEboue: You guys are jokers. Your institutions are comedy clubs. You have so many resources & man power yet you are always falling short.
@TheRealEboue:Oh sorry Nigeria, I even heard your country owns the first African television and you cannot even televise the game to the masses
@TheRealEboue: Drogba, Yaya,kolo, Zakora, gervinho,KaLou, and myself and all other players. We are all the same. One unity and family. Country comes 1st
@TheRealEboue: If we don’t beat you in the game, it means you are lucky. But trust me, we are going to deal with you so much , you would be eating grass
@TheRealEboue: Why don’t you speak to your NFA that cant grow a good soccer academy & produce players to last for a decade instead of new faces every week
@TheRealEboue: Blame me, i don’t care. I would say my mind. You can even blame me. Ghana can show the game to the masses and NTA cannot . Cover your face
TheRealEboue: My last word for Nigerians . Do not cry for me , cry for yourselves. In the true spirit of sport , I love you all . Don’t get too emotional.”
