Cohen Bramall’s former boss, Paul Casey, believes that the player has everything he needs to succeed at Arsenal after the club struck a deal to raise him up six levels of English football.

Casey, who is manager of Hednesford Town, told the Tamworth Herald, “He is one of the fastest footballers I have seen both on and off the ball. He can run the 100m in less than 11secs.

“His left foot is very good and he’s very much a modern-day full-back, a player who likes to bomb on.

“He’s done really well to land such a move and he really deserves it. He is a lovely lad.”

To put that in context, Gareth Bale can do 100m in 11.4 seconds, Theo Walcott 10.6. Bellerin’s speed is given as 4.41 seconds over 40m which works out at around 11.025 for 100m.
