Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is delighted for Jack Wilshere over his current form.

While Wilshere has already overcome his injury setbacks, Frimpong – who has chosen Ghana, where he was born, over England – is still trying to establish himself as a top-flight player more than a year after a cruciate injury while on loan at Wolves.

Now on-loan with Fulham, he said: “That is football. Sometimes you are going to get good luck, sometimes you are going to get bad luck. I have had loads of injuries but I mean to get over it just like Jack has.

“I am not going to make his head even bigger than it already is, though – I am not going to say he is an inspiration. But Jack is a great footballer.

“Every young player in the Premier League wants to achieve what he is doing.”
