Former Ivory Coast and Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue has narrated his struggles with mental health after his suspension by FIFA.
The 36-year-old opened up on French television about his battle with depression and admitted he had even considered suicide.
Eboue revealed his problems started when he was suspended by FIFA from all football-related activity for one year.
The ban, which was given as a result of failing to pay money owed to a former agent, led to the termination of his short-term contract at then Premier League side Sunderland in March 2016.
Without a professional club and shattered financially after a bitter and acrimonious divorce case, he admits he had suicidal thoughts.
