Emmanuel Frimpong set for Charlton debut

Published on: 23 November 2012

Would-be Ghana international Emmanuel Frimpong is to mark his debut for Charlton Athletics against Huddersfield in the English Npower CHampionship on Saturday.

The 20-year-old hard-tackling former England U16 captain signed for the Addicks this week on a deal keeping him at the Valley until January 1.

Frimpong will have to beat off competition from Eggert Jonsson and Johnnie Jackson for a starting place in Chris Powell's line-up.

This will be his first competitive game since playing part in Arsenal's 7-5 FA Cup win over Reading in October.

He is hoping to regain his lost form and weave his way back into Arsene Wenger's first team squad.

    "Frimpong will have to beat off competition from Eggert Jonsson and Johnnie Jackson for a starting place in Chris Powell’s line-up" Are you kidding me? I thought they said he will walk straight into the starting line up? So why are Ghanaians so crazy about his switch if he cannot even win an automatic selection in a division side?
