Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has again sparked controversy.
The Daily Star Sunday says reports Ghana international midfielder Frimpong used Twitter to say he would deliberately injure Germany trio Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker in training so they missed the tournament in Brazil next summer.
African powerhouse Ghana face Germany, Portugal and the US in a so-called group of death in South America in June.
And Frimpong, 21, tweeted after the draw: “Don’t worry Ghana, I’ve got your back, Ozil, Podolski and Per won’t be going to the World Cup due to my studs in training.”
Frimpong quickly deleted the message but a few eagle-eyed supporters spotted it before it came off the social networking site.
