Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong was sent off in his first game for Barnsley who lost 1-0 at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The 22-year-old lasted just 30 minutes on his full debut for the Reds after attracting two yellow cards to take an early shower.

Frimpong who had completed a permanent move from Arsenal on Friday was too eager to endear himself to the fans as he flew in with tackles.

His over enthusiasm earned him a 24th minute booking but that did little to put him off.

He then saw red six minutes later after getting into the referee’s book for another rash challenge.

Barnsley played most of the game a man down until an 80th minute sending off of Sheffield Wednesday’s Jermaine Johnson.

Danny Wilson’s side then went two men down in injury time after Jacob Mellis was also sent off for a bad tackle.

The defeat further hurts Barnsley’s chances of escaping the drop as they remain 23rd in the 24-team English second tier Championship.

The Ghana international will now have to serve a mandatory one-match ban for attracting two yellow cards leading to his sending off on Saturday.

    These things happen. He’ll come back even stronger and would show the world his talent in the world cup in Brazil soon.

  3. Adamu Muftawu says:

    The fact is Frimpong has joined a team battling to beat the drop zone.Barnsley are now 23rd on the League,just a place above the relegation zone.It’s not good enough of a movement for player fighting for a place in the Black Stars squad.
    He should have moved to one of these middle table clubs in the EPL.

  4. Assemblyman says:

    A potential mad man this..

  5. allese says:

    We have to understand his situation,a player who was totally kill at arsenal wanted to prove his capabilitie but it end up like that,I hope and pray that his new coach would handle it cool to help him.
