Frimpong ready to play for Ghana
England youth international Emmanuel Frimpong has declared he wants to play senior international football for Ghana.
Frimpong, who has played for England at Under-17 level, was born in Accra but moved to North London when he was a child.
The 19-year-old has yet to play for the Arsenal first team but was tipped to make the breakthrough until a cruciate knee injury ruled him out of action in August meaning he is likely to miss the whole season.
"I have always said that I will play for Ghana because I am a Ghanaian player," he told Citi Sports. "My whole family is from Ghana, but at the same time, I have been in England since I was young and I see England as my home.
"But at the moment, if Ghana call me up I will gladly go and play. But there are people who also don't want me to be called to play for Ghana, which is very disappointing. I guess I just have to wait for a call-up. But at the moment I am still playing for England so it's a bit of a difficult situation.
"I have always told my family that if Ghana call me, I will personally ride my own bicycle from England to Ghana."
