 Born in Abidjan, Eboué began his football career in the ASEC Mimosas youth academy.

 In 2002, Eboué moved to ASEC's Belgian parent club KSK Beveren and spent three seasons there.

 His impressive performances in Belgium caught the eye of Arsenal's scouts.

In the 2004/05 season, Eboué made his debut for Arsenal against Stoke City in their FA Cup title winning campaign.

Although. he was not initially a first team regular, making just one FA Premier League appearance during that season.

The following season, Eboué made his breakthrough into the Arsenal team.

 He started the season mainly as a reserve player, though he scored his first goal for Arsenal in the club's 3–0 League Cup third round victory at Sunderland on 25 October 2005. 

Despite leaving for the African Cup of Nations in January 2006, he was immediately sent into action on his return; he made his first career Premiership start at right back against Liverpool at Anfield, replacing the injured Lauren.

With Lauren injured for the rest of the season, Eboué unexpectedly held his place for the remainder of Arsenal's 2005–06 campaign.

Eboué's run in the Arsenal side included matches in the UEFA Champions League knockout phase against Real Madrid, Juventus, and Villarreal.

The Ivorian impressed and quickly adapted to the increased pace of the Premier League, as well as pressure of the Champions League.

Eboué started the 2006–07 season, and was named the Arsenal Player of the Month for September.

 However, he was injured while on  international duty and spent the whole of the month of October out with injury.

From the start of the 2007–08 season, Gunners coach Arsène Wenger, stated his intention to move Eboué into a role on the right wing, following the signing of Bacary Sagna. 

However, during the 2008–09 season, Eboue was frequently criticised by Arsenal fans after some less-than-satisfactory performances.

 In a match against Wigan in December 2008 at the Emirates, Eboué played particularly poorly after being brought on as a substitute. 

He reportedly made several unforced errors to the point where a small section of Arsenal fans began to boo him. Eboué continued to lose possession and in the second half, tackled his own player and gifted possession to Wigan.

At the end of 2010, late October or November, Eboué signed another long-term contract with Arsenal.

At the end of the 2010–11 season, Eboué made 27 appearances in total and scored once in all competitions

At the start of the 2011–12 season, Eboué lost his squad number to new signing and his national team mate Gervinho, who was given the number 27 shirt upon his arrival, which left Eboué's future at the club unclear. 

In the summer of 2011, Eboué completed a move to Turkish club Galatasaray for €3.5 million in 4-year contract (worth €2.35M a season plus bonus).

Following his move to Galatasaray, Eboué revealed that manager Arsène Wenger told him he would have few first-team opportunities and to listen to interest to join the Turkish side.

He would go on to  play 31 matches in the league as he secured his first league title of his professional career.

During the 2013 winter transfer window, Eboue  was joined by national teammate Didier Drogba on 28 January 2013.

On 9 April 2013, in the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Spanish club Real Madrid, Eboué scored from long range as Galatarsay secured a 3–2 win, falling 5–3 on aggregate.

 Eboué helped Galatasaray defend their league title, playing the full ninety minutes in their 4–2 defeat of Sivasspor on 5 May, a win which secured the club's 19th Turkish Super Lig title.

Eboue left Galatasaray in the 2014/15 season having made 101 appearances for the Turkish giants.

In March 2016, Eboué signed a short-term contract with Sunderland.

On 31 March 2016, Eboué began serving a one-year ban from all football-related activity, for failing to pay a former agent. 

He was released by Sunderland the following month, having not played for the club.

In the final years of his career,  Eboué trained with Hungarian side Ferencváros, but could not agree on a contract with the club.

In October 2017, Eboué was looking to join Türk Ocağı Limasol, a team in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. 

However, he was met with another disappointment as the move fell through due to issues with his blood that were discovered in a medical test.

In December 2017, Eboué was offered a job coaching the under-14 team at former club Galatasaray, when their manager Fatih Terim was made aware of Eboué's financial problems.

Eboué made his senior debut for the Elephants of Ivory Coast in 2004 and had generally been a regular fixture in the defence operating at right-back for the Elephants, along with former teammate Kolo Touré. 

On 18 November 2009, Eboué scored his first goal for Ivory Coast in a 2–2 draw against Germany.

 He was named in Sven-Göran Eriksson's Ivory Coast squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Eboue earned 78 caps and was part of their squads at five Africa Cup of Nations tournaments and two World Cups.

 In December 2017, Eboué told the Sunday Mirror that he was poor and homeless due to his divorce and bad investments that were under his former wife's control.

In June 2019, Eboué spoke about his ongoing struggles with mental health.

However, years later after the divorce, Eboue debunked reports that he lost everything and slipped into poverty.

“When [people] say Emmanuel Eboue lost everything, it’s not nice," the 40-year-old said, as reported by Citi Sports.

“Because I had a divorce [case] and they [court] said my wife won, they gave her all my properties – my two houses, money and the cars that I had in England.

“I wasn’t worried about it because I expected that she was going to use it to take care of my children.

“When they [court] said that, I was very disappointed… To be honest, for the first time, I was very down but after that, I prayed and forgot about all of that.”

Following the devastating divorce from his ex-wife, Amelie Bertrand, Eboue married his former girlfriend Stéphanie Boedé, whom he said, “fell in love with me when I had nothing”.

The couple celebrated both the traditional and court marriage in Abidjan in the presence of a couple of former Elephants players like Bonaventure Kalou, Amara Diané and Kader Keita.

“The past 14 months had been tough for me. You all know my story. But today, I am starting all over again and with the love of my life, Stéphanie,” Eboué told his guests.

“I met Stéphanie while playing at Asec. I had nothing then. I didn’t even know I would play in Europe but she accepted and stayed with me. Our paths have crossed again and with joy.”

The former Arsenal player is currently a scout for Galatasaray, where he spent several seasons playing in the Turkish Super Lig.

In one of his previous interviews, Eboué confessed that he had thought about suicide after his divorce.

“Imagine, after almost two decades of hard labour you lose everything you have. Even your kids, you are not permitted to see them.

"You think of the journey you have covered. You know it’s impossible to start all over again. What are you living for?” He said at the time.
