Former Gunner, Emmanuel Frimpong, was sent off in Ufa’s first match of the Russian season for reacting to racist chants hurled at him from the stands.

After being subjected to monkey chants in Ufa’s match against Spartak Moscow, the midfielder reacted by giving the guilty party the finger. The result of this was a red card and the 23-year-old had to leave the pitch.

Since the incident, Frimpong has apologised for his actions, although still making it clear that what provoked him wasn’t acceptable by anyone’s standards and implying that many would react the same. He did, however, want to make it known that the majority of the fans had been great and it was just one person ruining for the rest.

He’s also since posted a video of the reported incident on his Twitter.

Despite growing up at Arsenal, Frimpong only featured in 20 reserve games and 16 senior. Last year, the midfielder finally moved on and last season played 19 matches for the Russian team.

Hopefully the nasty piece of work hurling this abuse will be dealt with accordingly.
