Wenger to FA: Get Frimpong for England

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has urged The English FA to invite midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong to play for England in the future, after the youngster showed interest in playing for Ghana.

The 18 year-old was born in the African country, but is eligible to play for The Three Lions after moving to London ten years ago. Since the move, Frimpong has played for both the England under-16 and under-18 team, but looks to play internationally in the future. Wenger now believes The Football Association should contemplate and act fast:

“Here you have a boy who can choose between England and Ghana. So if I was in your place, I would have no hesitation and invite him to play very quickly for England.”

Frimpong has played a minimal amount of games for the Gunners, but Wenger insures he is “stronger than last year, physically”, hinting at an appearance during the forthcoming season, either in the Premier League or domestic cup action.
