​Reine-Adelaide on Arsenal exit: Why would I stay just to train?

Jeff Reine-Adelaide does not regret his decision to leave the North London club for Angers.

Reine-Adelaide signed a contract with the Ligue 1 side after failing to get sufficient opportunities in the Arsenal first team.

The France under-20 international was on the bench a few times for the Gunners, but he rarely got the chance to play in a competitive game.

"It was hard for me to stay three years there, knowing that I was almost never playing and that I only participated in training," he said to the Evening Standard.

"It was a very complicated situation. It was not easy to leave Arsenal but the loan I made here last season from February to May weighed heavily.

"It's a family club here, I needed that."
