Emmanuel Frimpong was reported to have suffered self racism yesterday, When asked on Twitter why he hadn't been picked for Today's carling cup match against Chelsea , The Ghanian replied:
'Sometimes I wish I was white and English #realtalk.'
Frimpong has since backtracked over the controversial tweet which suggests he was marginalized out of Arsenal squad as he quickly deleted the comments and insisted: ‘Not every tweet is football related.’
The 21-year-old, who was last year fined £6,000 by the Football Association for branding a Twitter user ‘scum yid’, later 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 almost 800,000 followers on Twitter, a YouTube channel and official website, despite having started just three Premier League matches for his boyhood club.
Wenger said Frimpong’s omission from the Arsenal squad to face Chelsea was because ‘he is still short of competition’.
