Arsenal's Emmanuel Frimpong denies accusing Arsene Wenger of racism

Emmanuel Frimpong denies that he accused Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger of racism due to his omission from the Capital One Cup squad.

Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has denied suggestions that he accused manager Arsene Wenger of racism following a controversial message on Twitter.

The out-of-favour 21-year-old sparked rumours of a race row when he tweeted: "Sometimes I wish I was white and English. #realtalk."

While the midfielder did not specifically relate the view to football reasons, Frimpong's tweet came after he responded to a fellow user asking if he was in the squad for tonight's Capital One Cup tie against Chelsea by saying, "Lol, I wanna laugh."

The initial tweets were eventually deleted by the midfielder, who later wrote: "Not every tweet is football related Goosh."

Frimpong also warned his followers not to believe any reports suggesting that there was a race issue within the club.
