‘I am looking at becoming a coach or a businessman’ – Emmanuel Frimpong after hanging his boots

Ex-Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Yaw Frimpong is considering veering into coaching or becoming a business mogul after hanging his boots at an early age of 27.

The former Arsenal midfielder called time off his playing career last month, giving reasons as series of recurring injuries which has pinned him to the treatment room in most part of his playing career.

His natural talent has been overshadowed by injuries, which has taken the shine out of a start to a blistering career.

“With my next line of action, for now, I am just assessing what I can do,” Frimpong told Kumasi-based Y FM.

“I am still looking at some options – like coaching, like business.

“So for now, I don’t really have a specific thing that I am doing at the moment.

“But we’re still working on it.”

“There reason I retired is that I was having some injuries and the pains were too much to bear,” Frimpong reiterated.

“So I decided that I will give it a rest and spend some time with the family. As you know, family is what is important.”

After rising to the Arsenal senior team in 2011, he has gone to feature for Wolverhampton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic, Fulham, Barnsley, Ufa, Arsenal Tula, AFC Eskilstuna and Ermis Aradippou in 2017.

Though Frimpong represented England at the youth level, he made his senior debut for the Black Stars on March 2013 in a World Cup Qualifying match against Sudan.
