- Emmanuel Frimpong featured in six matches for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger
- The former Ghanaian international has expressed disappointment at Granit Xhaka over his red card against Burnley
- Frimpong has urged Mikel Arteta to sell the former captain and move for him on a free
Emmanuel Frimpong has offered to return to play Arsenal as he tells the club to sell Granit Xhaka and then sign him on a free, SunSport reports.
The 28-year-old expressed disappointment following Arsenal’s stunning 1-0 loss at home to Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday, December 13.
Arsenal were the architect of their own misfortune after Granit Xhaka was shown a red card during the game and then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang headed home an own goal.
It was still 0-0 as at the 58th minute when a scuffle saw the former Arsenal captain grab Ashley Westwood by the throat before he was sent off.
And Frimpong had some words of his own for the 28-year-old.
"Sell Xhaka and get me on a free."
One fan replied:
"A nice idea but you say this as if someone would be willing to pay for Xhaka."
"Plz come back! At least he'd fight for the badge!!"
Also, a number of Arsenal fans are yet to come to terms with the home loss to Burnley and have called for the sacking of Mikel Arteta as manager of the Gunners.
It was the club’s fourth straight home-defeat in 61 years, and supporters of the club are upset with the tactician’s strategy.
Arsenal are now languishing in 15th position despite starting the season on a promising note and fans have called for Arteta to be relieved of his duties.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Patrice Evra has disclosed that Arsenal legend Thierry Henry once turned off his TV set when he saw Granit Xhaka as the club captain during a Premier League game.
The 28-year-old remains a controversial figure at the club and fans have called for the player to be sold after he swore at them when he was substituted during a game against Crystal Palace in 2019.
That incident saw him got stripped of the captaincy and his reputation diminished drastically, but Arteta is attempting to help the player rediscover himself.
