Emmanuel Eboue, a former international for Ivory Coast, has shared with the world his most cherished encounter with Christian Atsu in a game against the Ghanaian Black Stars.

Eboue admitted he knew Atsu because they were both Premier League players, but one of his most recent recollections of Atsu was when they competed against one another for the national team.

He claims that because they were both quick, Atsu pledged to make the match difficult for him.

“When we were playing Ivory Coast versus Ghana he was playing on my side so he told me brother today I will kill you today. I said no problem, you are fast I’m fast so today we will see. That was my last memory I have about him,” Eboue told Mx24gh in an interview.
