Cohen: Emery binned me off; FOOTBALL.
SPORTS SHORTS FORMER Hednesford Town defender Cohen Bramall has slammed Unai Emery after the manager released him from Arsenal without the pair having had a conversation.
Brammell was thrust into the limelight when Arsene Wenger paid PS40,000 to take him from Keys Park to the Emirates in 2017.
The defender had a loan spell at Birmingham last season where he made eight appearances.
But he says things were never the same for him at Arsenal once Wenger left and Emery arrived.
"When Arsene left, it changed the whole thing for me, I'm gutted that he left," Bramall said.
"When Unai came in I was hoping to train across with the first-team but I didn't really get that opportunity.
"I didn't have a conversation with Unai at all. That's the thing. I didn't have a conversation with him once.
"It was probably difficult for him because I'm guessing he was told I didn't have the best of loans at Birmingham, so he just binned me off.
"And when I did get told to go over there and train, it was at the last minute.
"That's the thing that upset me a bit because I didn't get the chance to show Unai what I could do, like I did with Arsene.
"The last three months I worked really hard to see if anything would change, but nothing did.
"So I knew it (being released) was coming. "I had already accepted it when Arsene went."
