6-year-old Frimpong and his family would later move to the UK in 2007 after his mum and dad separated. His mother, Bernice took the Frimpongs to the UK with the thought of her children getting a better education. Jeremie was extremely passionate about football from a young age and enjoyed spending his free time playing video games just like any other child of his age. He completed his basic education at Ravensbury Primary School where he initially did not speak English. Jeremie would make friends by letting his skills with the ball do the talking. He was so good that he always played with the older students which caused his mum to worry that they might break young Jeremie’s legs.

Jeremie Frimpong Brothers and Sisters

Jeremie Frimpong was fortunate to grow up alongside 6 siblings(3 brothers and 3 sisters) meaning he never had to worry about lively company throughout his childhood. All of his siblings have their own unique stories with Jeremie growing up.

Frimpong’s older brother, Jeffrey used to create incentives so that Frimpong would always give it his all on the football pitch. He talked about his brother in an interview, “I used to tell him, ‘You score this amount of goals, I’ll buy you this, I’ll take you there”. Frimpong like every child was into video games at a young age. This gave Jeffrey the opportunity to further motivate him by saying, “If you score three goals, then Mum and I will put money towards buying you a PS3”. 

Jeremie’s older sister Nana revealed a funny experience with Jeremie where she said, “He would literally use everything as a football. One day, he was playing football with a spoon or something and he accidentally broke the telly. My mum got really angry, so we spoke to him about playing in the house. But it was like speaking to a wall because of his love of football.”
