Arsenal new boy Cohen Bramall has surprisingly deleted his Twitter account after trolls exposed a tweet which hinted that he is a Manchester United fan.
The young defender officially completed his £40,000 move from non-league Hednesford Town to Arsenal earlier this week.
There are definitely many perks to being a Premier League footballer, but having your old tweets trawled through by football fans with nothing better to do is not at all one of them.

But it’s the reality, and you’ve got to hand it to the trolls, as they are always thorough. They’ve gone all the way back to Boxing Day in 2012 to dig up a tweet from the then-15-year-old Bramall, proclaiming “For all the people who hate United… Suck out!”
Though no one is sure what it means either, but it actually came on the back of Man United’s 4-3 victory over Newcastle United.
Bramall has since deleted his Twitter account, most probably before anyone could find any posts praising the beautiful exciting life at White Hart Lane!
While you can forgive Bramall for not going for the tightest social media policy before his meteoric rise, he might have to watch out in future.
The majority of young players at clubs like Arsenal are already well aware of what’s expected of them by the age of 20, courtesy years of advice and invaluable media training. But those who join late, like Bramall, the task of adjusting from being your average young guy lifestyle to household name can become a little overwhelming.
