Emmanuel Frimpong’s season is over having ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament during Wolves 2-1 win over QPR on Saturday.
Frimpong, who had been due to stay on loan at Wolves until the end of the season, will now see specialists in London over the next few days before having surgery and starting a programme of rehabilitation.
It’s a big blow for the midfielder who suffered a similar injury during pre-season two summers ago and missed all of the 2010-11 campaign.
Thankfully this appears to be bad luck, rather than a recurrence of the old problem. The new injury is in his right knee, the previous was in his left.
A statement on the Wolves website said, “Everyone at Wolves would like to thank the midfielder for his efforts whilst at the club and join Arsenal in wishing him a swift recovery.”
The typical recovery/rehab time for a cruciate injury is 6-9 month. All we can do is wish him well in his recovery and hope he’s back soon to Frimpong people right in their Frimpongs.
