Hector Bellerin has moved to slam the YouTube channel Arsenal Fan TV, claiming that they can’t be fans in the way that they grow and succeed due to the club’s downfalls.
The channel has been cast into fame in recent years, with one member of the so-called fan’s channel even making an appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, and the YouTube channel has been cast well into the spotlight, with his highlights grabbing much of their interest following losses and shock defeats.
Hector Bellerin has now slammed the creators of the channel, and insists that none of the players actually watch the show.
“I don’t think there’s players who go on the internet to watch Arsenal Fan TV,” Bellerin said.
“It does sometimes pop up on your timeline. I see it sometimes, some friends say ‘oh have you heard what that guy on Arsenal Fan TV said.’
“It’s so wrong for someone who claims to be a fan and their success is fed off a failure. How can that be a fan?
“There’s just people hustling, trying to make money their way, which everyone is entitled to do.
“For us players it doesn’t affect us. If they want to have fun with it then have fun. When you grow you realise what is important to you to take [on board].
“If a coach comes to me and says you’ve done something bad I’m going to take that advice. If someone from Arsenal Fan TV says this guy needs to do this or that I’m not going to listen to him.
“They’re entitled to their opinion and the way they want to do it. If people find it funny then go watch it.”
What do you think of the channel? Do more rival fans watch the show than actual Gunners fans?
