Ghanaian International Emmanuel Frimpong Retires From Football At Age 27

on

Ghanaian international and former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has announced his retirement from football at the age of 27.

Frimpong, who came through Arsenal’s youth academy, made just six appearances during his time at the Emirates Stadium before he joined Barnsley in January 2014.

The Ghanaian last played for Ermis Aradippou in 2017 but has struggled to overcome a knee injury injury in the last five years.

“It is with great sadness I have decided to retire from professional football,” Frimpong said on Twitter.

“I have had problems with my knee for the last five years or so and have got back to playing at a professional level.

“But since November 2017 I haven’t been in action as I had a tear in my knee ligament.

“I decided with my own will that I will not opt for the operation since I was not enjoying football playing through pain.

“I would love to thank all the clubs I have represented, Arsenal, Charlton, Barnsley, Fulham, Ufa, AFC Eskilstuna and Ermis for the love and support they have given and to the fans who always supported me. Thank you and let’s see what the future holds.

“Spending time with my daughter and family the last year has made me realise I’m blessed.”

Former Arsenal team-mate Jack Wilshere, who was also part of the club’s youth set up at the same time, wished Frimpong the best during his retirement in response on social media.

The West Ham midfielder said: “From under 11’s to first team…Frimmy it was a pleasure my friend! Good luck to you and your family in the future mate. Happy retirement. “
