Fake Eboue behind 'Eagle rant'



Supersport.com can today reveal that reports charging that Ivorian Emmanuel Eboue had referred to the Super Eagles as Super fried chickens to be devoured as such, are false.

No such disrespect was ever made by the Ivorian and ex Gunner.

Citing information from a Twitter handle @TheRealEboue the reports included actual posts complete with factual inaccuracies and a parody of errors. Some wicked barbs were also aimed specifically at Mikel Obi and coach Keshi.

Not that it would matter to Nigeria.

If these were aimed to upset the Nigerian duo they failed. Supersport.com further reports that both as well as all Eagles remain unreachable in a tight cocoon of security spun around them in South Africa. This includes access to media reports both valid and fake.

A NFF official however dismissed the affair as nonsense and said Nigeria was 100 per cent focused on implementing Keshi’s recently formulated game plan aimed at tripping the Elephants. “Both teams respect each other and we all know that. I mean four have Chelsea ties. ” he added.

Nigeria face the Ivory Coast in quarter final three on Saturday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
