Emmanuel Frimpong admits there was a time he thought his chance with Arsenal was gone and is determined to make the most of Tuesday night's final Champions League Group F clash against Olympiacos in Athens.

Midfielder Frimpong, 19, has battled his way back to fitness following a serious knee injury which came after an impressive display alongside England starlet Jack Wilshere in the 2010 pre-season Emirates Cup tournament. Frimpong admits there were times during his rehabilitation when doubts crept in over whether he would have a future with the Gunners.

"I knew I would come back to playing football, but felt I was never going to get my chance at Arsenal again," said Ghana-born Frimpong, who came to England when he was eight and was brought up near Tottenham. "When I had my chance, everything was going well. I thought that when I came back, we would have all the other players fit again."
