PICTURE: Ex-Arsenal star mocks Nicklas Bendtner with Ballon d'Or message

Former Arsenal man Emmanuel Frimpong reached out to his former teammate.

Emmanuel Frimpong is now an ex-Arsenal player, and he will soon be joined in that status by Nicklas Bendtner.

The Dane's contract is set to expire in June, ending his long association with the club.

At the weekend recently departed midfielder Frimpong sent Bendtner a message via Instagram, with a little mickey-taking at his expense.

It depicts Bendtner as a guest of honour with Real Madrid, celebrating with the Ballon d'Or trophy.

Bendtner famously said earlier in the season he would consider a transfer to Real or Barcelona.

Frimpong's message said simply: "Lord @bendtnerb52 I miss you"

Could it be that a more likely destination for Bendtner this summer is actually being re-united with Frimpong at Championship bottom side Barnsley?
