It seem Arsene Wenger has formed a rare gem in new signing Cohen Bramall after the player explained what his first day at Arsenal’s training was like, per Skysports.
The former Hednesford Town starlet couldn’t contain his smile as he spoke about pulling up to London Colney on his first day and immediately being thrown in with the first team in front of Arsene Wenger.
“I drove in there and I saw the Arsenal Football Club [sign] and everything else,” he explained.
I was absolutely gobsmacked. It was like a dream.
“I was with the first team on the Thursday and the Friday and my eyes just lit up straight away but I had to do my job.”
He went on to explain his approach to the training session, since obviously he wants to get noticed by the boss for all the right reasons and show him what he has to offer.
“I just played to the best of my ability, using my speed a lot, overlapping from left-back and tried to get my body out there in front of Wenger.”
Given the injury to Gibbs and Monreal’s propensity to be easily fatigued, Bramall is most likely to start the game against Preston.
