Comments made by Frimpong on Twitter will be investigated by the FA

Emmanuel Frimpong has been charged by the FA for improper conduct relating to comments made by the Arsenal midfielder on Twitter.

The 20-year-old responded to a Tottenham fan on July 15 and although he swiftly deleted the comment, it has not escaped the FA’s attention

“The allegation is that Frimpong posted comments amounting to improper conduct and/or which brought the game into disrepute, which included a reference to ethnic origin, faith or race,” read a statement on the FA’s official website.

“The player has until 4pm on 27 July 2012 to respond to the charge.”
