Arsenal's Frimpong excited by Wilshere return

Posted On Monday, 1st October 2012

Emmanuel Frimpong says he feels as excited as any Arsenal fan seeing Jack Wilshere return to action after a 14-month injury nightmare.

The Gunners midfielder continued his own playing comeback when he lined up alongside the England star for the club’s U21 side against West Brom on Monday.

Wilshere came through 63 minutes at The Hawthorns, while Frimpong – who also featured as a second-half substitute in the 6-1 League Cup victory against Coventry City – was withdrawn with 20 minutes left on the clock.

“It was good to come back and play with the reserves,” said the Ghanaian. “It was pleasing to see Jack playing again too.

“Jack did alright. Obviously being out for 14 months it’s always going to take a bit of time. But for me he is the same old Jack and technically he still looks the same.

“It is going to take time to get back to his best, but Arsenal and England fans should be excited to see him back again. I’m excited.”

Frimpong believes Wilshere will be back playing for England in no time at all, but says his priority is impressing Arsene Wenger as he continues his rehabilitation ahead of an Arsenal comeback.

“When you’re a player like Jack, fans of Arsenal are going to need him playing again and hopefully he will back in a couple of games,” he added. “If he’s fit then I’m sure the manager will pick him.

“It’s going to be good for England to have Jack back but at the moment he’s just focused on getting back for Arsenal. If he’s playing well for Arsenal, you cannot see why he cannot be picked for England.”

Arsenal lost their unbeaten record with a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, and are now preparing for Wednesday’s nights Champions League clash at home to Olympiakos.
