VIDEO: Former Gunner kicked in the head by Real's £23m signing

Arsenal cult hero Emmanuel Eboue had a painful experience for Galatasaray last night.

Emmanuel Eboue will be waking up this morning wondering what is worse.

The physical pain from taking a boot to the head, or the emotional scars of being embarrassed and taken apart by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Big spending Galatasaray suffered a humiliating 6-1 home defeat, as Real Madrid turned 'hell' into something of a footballing fantasy.

Right-back Eboue had a torrid night, seeing Cristiano Ronaldo lining up against him score a hat-trick and turn provider for another.

The defender has been a mainstay at the club since signing from Arsenal two summers ago, where he had fallen out of favour..

Perhaps his lacklustre display from a defensive point of view had something to do with this; Eboue took a boot to the head from new Madrid signing Isco.

The Spaniard got away without even so much as a card for his part in the collision, noteworthy because of the red card received by Nani against Madrid last season in similar circumstances in the 2-1 win at Manchester United.
