Arsenal Football Club can confirm that on-loan midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee whilst playing for Wolverhampton Wanderers against Queens Park Rangers during the first half of Saturday’s Premier League fixture at Loftus Road.

Having had a similar injury to his left knee in 2010, Emmanuel will see specialists in London over the next few days before having surgery and starting a programme of rehabilitation.

Emmanuel is expected to be out for a number of months and will therefore miss the remainder of this season.

Everyone at Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers wish Emmanuel a swift recovery.
