Arsenal's Frimpong charged over 'scum yid' jibe

    Arsenal footballer Emmanuel Frimpong, 20, has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association for comments he made over Twitter. The l midfielder labelled a rival fan a "scum yid" in response to a comment aimed at the Ghanaian in which the fan told Frimpong he "prayed" the player would break his arms and legs.

    A statement on the FA's website said: "Arsenal's Emmanuel Frimpong has been charged under FA Rule E3 for improper conduct in relation to recent comments made on Twitter.

    "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."

    Frimpong's actions failed to escape the attention of the FA, despite the player quickly removing the comment from his Twitter account.

    The charge comes after Tottenham player Danny Rose last week apologised for calling his own fans "yiddos".
