Manchester United confirmed the sacking of David Moyes on Tuesday morning and, with it, came a flurry of jokes, send-ups and memes regarding the beleaguered Scot. One notable figure to join in the mickey taking was former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong.
Frimpong is somewhat renowned for poking fun at others across his social media accounts, regardless of his relative fall from grace, and the 22-year-old just could not help himself following the Moyes announcement.
When it became official that Moyes was no more at Old Trafford, Frimpong shared an image on Instagram showing a gun-toting Jose Mourinho, Manuel Pellegrini, Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers pleading for the former Everton boss to remain with Manchester United.
But, while Frimpong was having a laugh at the expense of Moyes, he did outline the respect he has for the 50-year-old, claiming that the Manchester United job was simply ‘too big’ for him.
Frimpong, meanwhile, is fighting a losing battle at Barnsley having left Arsenal for Oakwell in January, with the Championship club looking increasingly likely to drop down to the third tier.
The Ghana international has made nine appearances since completing a permanent transfer from Arsenal in January, and is staring down the barrel with Barnsley third from bottom with two games left to play.
Frimpong played only 16 times for the Arsenal first-team before he was afforded the chance to further his career elsewhere, although he is likely to pursue a move away from Barnsley should they be unable to beat the drop.
