Angers forward Reine-Adelaide: Emery didn't want me at Arsenal

Angers forward Jeff Reine-Adelaide has revealed Unai Emery told him he wasn't needed at Arsenal.

The 21-year-old joined the Gunners in 2015 but made just three appearances for the club before joining Angers in the summer of 2018.

And the Frenchman has opened up about his exit from the Emirates.

"It is true that I would like to speak a little less of Arsenal. I was young. It was complicated," he told Goal in an exclusive interview. "There was so much competition that it was difficult to get into the coach's line-up.

"He [Emery] told me that the club did not rely too much on me. I took a blow, but Angers was on the lookout. It was a new chance, a new beginning. The train does not pass often and I was happy to get back in the right car."
