Charlton boss gives his verdict on Frimpong after Huddersfield debut

Emmanuel Frimpong in action for Charlton Athletic

Charlton manager Chris Powell was very impressed by Arsenal loanee Emmanuel Frimpong’s performance on his debut against Huddersfield.

The 20-year-old was withdrawn midway through the second half of the 1-1 draw at The Valley, but Powell revealed his injury is not serious and expects him to feature against Peterborough on Tuesday.

“He had ‘Championship cramp’, as I call it,” said Powell.

Frimpong is on loan at Charlton until New Year’s Day as he look stake a claim for a future in the Gunners’ first team.

“He had to get used to the pace of it, but I have got to say I felt he was very, very good for the hour he was on,” added Powell.

“He showed his strength, he showed his attitude in going forward, his passing ability – he is a good player.

“I knew I was getting a good player from Arsenal and for his debut in those conditions, it wasn’t easy. I felt it was a very good performance.

“That can bode well for us. I am sure he will be fine for Tuesday [against Peterborough] and he put in a good hour of work for us.”
