New Fulham man confident of safety

Emmanuel Frimpong ArsenalEmmanuel Frimpong believes that he will not be embroiled in a relegation dogfight with Fulham after joining the club on loan from Arsenal.

The Cottagers have struggled of late, picking up just two wins in their last 15 Premier League games which has seen them fall into 14th position.

Only six points separate the West Londoners from the bottom three, a precarious position to be in ahead of the latter stages of the season.

Despite this, Frimpong feels that his new club will turn their form around and move clear of the drop zone:

“The lads are very calm, I think when you are in a position like Fulham are at the moment you need players to be calm and not to panic.” He is quoted by Sky Sports.

“Every team goes through a patch in the season when you’re not getting results.

“As long as the manager and the team know there are players that can perform and it is only a little slip, I think we will be fine.”

He believes that the amount of experience within the squad will be enough to steer them clear of danger:

“We have some experienced players in the changing room, obviously the captain Brede Hangeland, Damien Duff and Dimitar Berbatov.

“You have got some very experienced players and I don’t think we should start panicking yet.”

Since breaking into the Arsenal first-team set-up Frimpong has struggled for game time.

A series of injuries and competition for places saw him loaned out to both Charlton and Wolves in the last year.

His time Fulham will only be temporary, but he insists that he is happy to be at Craven Cottage:

“It has been a very good start,

“It has been good training and the lads have been really welcoming to me so I am looking forward to my first game.”
