Arsenal combative midfielder, Emmanuel Frimpong, on loan at Wolves, has been ruled out of the season. The Ghana-born enforcer ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in last weekend’s game againt Queens Park Rangers.
The club confirmed it on their official website. The statement read: “Emmanuel Frimpong is returning back to Arsenal after it was confirmed he ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in Saturday’s Premier League game at QPR.
“Frimpong, who had been due to stay on loan at Molineux until the end of the season, will now see specialists in London over the next few days before having surgery and starting a programme of rehabilitation.
“The midfielder, who suffered the same injury to his left knee in 2010, had made an impressive start to his temporary spell at Wolves, catching the eye during his five appearances in gold and black.
“Frimpong is expected to be out for a number of months and will therefore miss the remainder of this season. Everyone at Wolves would like to thank the midfielder for his efforts whilst at the club and join Arsenal in wishing him a swift recovery.”
Frimpong had suffered a similar injury in his left knee. No date has been pencilled in for his return.
