Under-fire Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Eboue has vowed to silence his Emirates Stadium boo-boys.
The Ivory Coast international came in for criticism as he became one of the select few players to come off the bench only to be substituted later on during the Gunners' home victory over Wigan last weekend following an unimpressive display.
Eboue admits he was surprised by his treatment from Arsenal fans, but he has been buoyed by the support of manager Arsene Wenger.
"It was sad," Eboue said in The People. "I did not expect that reaction from the public because I have always given all for Arsenal.
"But I am a professional and I have respect for the reactions of the crowd.
"The manager has encouraged me in the last few days and told me that you get over these things by working harder and fighting.
"He has promised me that if I give 200 per cent in every game, the fans will applaud me again."
