The young Spaniard Hector Bellerin has already made eight starts for the Gunners his season due to our horrendous injury list, but he has made it clear that he knows other players are ahead of him in the pecking order, but he has a plan on how to get ahead of them in the future.
Bellerin said on Arsenal.com: “You know there are always players in front of and behind you, who are going to try to get your spot. The only thing you can do is learn from them.
“You know that if they are in front of you, it’s because they are better than you, so that means that they are something that you’re not doing right.
“When Bacary was here, I used to look at his games and analyse him, because I think he was one of the best players we used to have on the pitch. When Jenko or Calum play, it’s about analysing the things they do right and wrong.
“When I play my games, I need to analyse myself. I need to wait for my time – work hard every day and be patient, because that’s what it’s about.”
That’s a great attitude from the 20 year-old, and if he sticks to that humble plan there is no doubt that he will one day become a regular starter even when everyone is fit. Keep at it Hector, and you will go far……
