Football - Frimpong unfazed by Fulham blip

Emmanuel Frimpong does not believe anybody at new club Fulham should be panicking about their current predicament.

After a bright start to the campaign, the Cottagers are in the midst of a sticky patch and sit 14th in the Barclays Premier League standings, just six points off the drop zone.

Martin Jol's men have only won two of their last 15 league games and will be hoping for a change in fortunes when West Ham visit Craven Cottage.

Frimpong, who has joined on loan from Arsenal until the end of the season, could make his Fulham debut against the Hammers and thinks his new club will be fine.

"The lads are very calm," he told Fulham TV. "I think when you are in a position like Fulham are at the moment you need players to be calm and not to panic.

"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.

"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. I think we will be fine."
