• Frimpong charged over tweets

Frimpong, 20, was involved in a minor Twitter altercation with a fan of a rival team in July after the fan tweeted abuse aimed at the Arsenal player. The player's reply was quickly deleted.

The midfielder was charged with improper conduct by the Football Association last month and has now admitted to the charge, with the governing body warning him about his future conduct.

A statement on the FA's website read: "Arsenal's Emmanuel Frimpong has been fined £6,000 and warned as to his future conduct after admitting an FA charge under FA Rule E3 for improper conduct in relation to recent comments made on Twitter.

"Frimpong posted comments amounting to improper conduct and/or which brought the game into disrepute, which included a reference to faith."
