Ghana and former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has retired from professional football.

Taking to Twitter, Frimpong wrote: ‘It is with great sadness I have decided to retire from professional football.

I have had problems with my knee for the last five years or so and have got back to playing at a professional level.

But since November 2017 I haven’t been in action as I had a tear in my knee ligament.

I decided with my own will that I will not opt for the operation since I was not enjoying football playing through pain.

I would love to thank all the clubs I have represented, Arsenal, Charlton, Barnsley, Fulham, Ufa, AFC Eskilstuna and Ermis for the love and support they have given and to the fans who always supported me. Thank you and let’s see what the future holds.

Spending time with my daughter and family the last year has made me realise I’m blessed.

Emmanuel Frimpong featured once for Ghana at the senior level.
