Cowley - Arsenal gave Lincoln a footballing education

Danny Cowley was still full of smiles when he met with the press after watching his side lose 5-0 at the Emirates.

Full of praise for Arsenal, Arsene Wenger and his own players, he said it was hard to watch, especially in the second half. He also came to the defence of Wenger saying that his influence on the side was clear and that they had given him a ‘footballing education’.

Cowley also admitted that he’s looking forward to getting out of the spotlight and back to chasing a ball around.

It’s a fascinating press conference and well worth your time to see how the media handle a football manager when they don’t have an overwhelming narrative to stick to.
