20-year-old Cohen Bramall, who signed for Premier League giants Arsenal on Tuesday, has revealed his fairy tale story of how just a week after being made redundant from his factory job with luxury car makers Bentley, he signed for Premier League giants Arsenal..
The leftback, who had previously failed to convince Crystal Palace and Sheffield Wednesday to take him on after trials with them — signed for a reported fee of 40,000 (46,000 euros, $48,500) from non league side Hednesford Town, told the Arsenal website;
“Incredible, incredible. It’s a dream come true. I can’t believe that I’m here already,”
“I played a game at Birmingham City on a Monday. Then on the Tuesday, I was made redundant from Bentley Motors and on the Wednesday, Arsenal came in.
“I was gobsmacked and took the chance with both hands. I drove down on the Wednesday and trained with the first team on Thursday and Friday. Then they offered me a deal.”
