The midfielder is clearly feeling victimised.
Ahead of the League Cup clash with Chelsea on Tuesday, Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has spoken out on Twitter about a lack of opportunities.
Frimpong will not feature in the match and is yet to make an appearance at all for the Gunners this season.
When asked why the Ghana international was not in the squad the response from the player was ‘Lol, I wanna laugh.’
@IAMFRIMPONG26 Why ain’t you in the squad for tomorrow’s game?

To suggest that the 21-year-old is not getting game time under Arsene Wenger due to the starlet’s race and nationality is a strong call.
Especially when Wenger has actually been criticised in the past for not fielding enough English talent in the first team.
In fact since Martin Keown and Ray Parlour retired in 2004 just one white, English player – Jack Wilshere – has been played by the Frenchman.
If Frimpong is suggesting racism then the African could probably do with checking the recent history of the Gunners before making those accusations.
The youngster has failed to break into the first team in north London after loan spells with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic and Fulham in the past few years.
Wenger clearly doesn’t rate Frimpong – based on the player’s ability – and tweets like this are hardly endearing to the 64-year-old.
