With Emmanuel Eboué no longer at the Club, it seems that young Emmanuel Frimpong is now the funniest person in the Arsenal dressing room.
Speaking to Arsenal Player, striker Theo Walcott confirmed that the midfielder is one who keeps the dressing room entertained as he is a lively character who likes music, Twitter and likes to get everyone involved with the Englishman believing that the youngster is indeed ready to take over the crown left abandoned by the Ivory Coast International.
Asked about his favourite goal in Arsenal history, Walcott remembered the fantastic effort from Frenchman Thierry Henry against Manchester United with the 22-year old including the Arsenal legend in his list of players who inspired him the most, with Michael Owen another one he admired as a child.
And on his long-term objectives, Walcott concluded by saying that winning trophies is a must, the English Premier League as well as the F.A. Cup, a competition that has a special meaning for him as an Englishman as it’s a tournament he used to watch on TV, as a kid.
In reply to fans questions, the 22-year old said:
[The funniest person in the dressing room?] It would probably be Manu Frimpong, he’s taking over the crown from [Emmanuel] Eboué, he’s keeping the boys entertained.
He’s just a very lively character, he likes his music, likes Twitter a lot, he just brings the boys together, he just likes to get everyone involved.
[My favourite Arsenal goal ever?] It’s Thierry Henry against Manchester United when he chipped up and volleyed it in the top corner.
[The player who inspired me the most?] It was Thierry Henry and Michael Owen. Michael Owen, coming through at such a young age, proving to people what he can do.
And then Thierry Henry, had a slow start to his career but just managed to take it on, becoming the best striker in the world.
[My long-term career goals?] To win the English Premier League, you know, you want to win as many trophies as you can, any footballer wants to do that.
You want to play in finals, the F.A. Cup is something I would love to win in my career, just being English there’s something about that Cup, I used to watch it as a kid.
