Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong sparks race row

Emmanuel Frimpong has suggested that the reason he isn't in Arsenal's squad to play Chelsea in the Capital One Cup is because of his race.

When asked on Twitter why he hadn't been picked for Tuesday's match, Frimpong replied: 'Lol I wanna laugh.

'Sometimes I wish I was white and English #realtalk.'

He swiftly deleted his remark and added ‘not every tweet is football related’ but some fans responded by suggesting his career at the club may be over.

Later the 21-year-old added: 'Look what ever you read tomorrow has majorly been twisted. Is a joke what people will do to start controversy goodnight people.'

Frimpong has previously been charged with improper conduct and fined £6,000 by the FA after a comment aimed at a Tottenham fan in 2012.

He has only featured six times for Arsenal and has been shipped out by Arsene Wenger on loan to Wolves, Charlton and Fulham over the past two seasons.
Call Wenger selfish, stubborn and a miser but never a racist, he fields players from different countries over the years.

Frimpong just 'frimponged' himself :), he's just not good enough and cannot compete with the likes of Ozil, Carzola, Arteta, Wilshere, Flamini and even the reborn-ed Ramsey.
