Wolves Arsenal loanee Frimpong fit to face Liverpool
At first there were information that the kick in the face midfielder Frimpong received against the Villians Saturday had broken his jaw and he was going to be out for three months. Fortunately that was a foregone conclusion.
Hospital checks showed that nothing was broken and when he was in for a recheck yesterday of his left eye, everything was as it should be when it comes to his sight also. Apart from the bruising and that he is very swollen in the face, that is.
Frimpong was – together with Michael Kightly – the best player in Wolves when they played Villa Saturday and is beginning to build a reputation among the Wolves faithful as a tough, solid midfielder with great skills going forward.
As Wolves are fighting for survival in the league the team are in great need of the skills Frimpong has shown in the engine room.
(Still) manager Mick McCarthy said to the press yesterday:
“Frimpong will be OK for Liverpool. He went to hospital with the doctor yesterday and he will be fine. He will go to see a specialist on Thursday and I expect him to train on Friday, so fingers crossed, he’ll be fine. There’s no damage to his eye, he’s just got a bruised face.”
Not equally good news about the recovery of Jamie O’Hara, though. He is back in light training, but it will take another two weeks before he will be available after his hernia operation. Hopefully he can play a role against Rangers, but more probable in the derby against the team down the road.
