The young Spaniard Hector Bellerin seems shocked that he has become a regular starter for Arsenal, and is determined to keep on working hard and improving to try and keep his place. He made it clear how much he is loving his life at the moment. “Suddenly you find yourself playing every week and it’s a nice feeling because it’s not as if you are playing for just any team, you are playing for Arsenal,” Hector told the official Arsenal website.
“So the fact that I am playing every week for Arsenal, at just 19 years old, is something that I am really proud of.
“I’m really grateful to the people who have given me the chance, and the fact that we are getting some wins as well is really nice and I’m very happy about it.
“I just want to work harder to show the coach that I am ready to play the next game as well. That’s how it has to be.
“You can’t take anything for granted because you can have a bad game and then you will find yourself on the bench.
“So whatever the performances are like, you need to keep working every week and I think that’s the reason why I’m here at the moment.”
He has a great attitude, and if he keeps improving like this he is certain to stay as our first choice right-back for the forseeable future. Matthieu Debuchy may be the first-choice for France, but after making room for Bellerin by getting hit by injury this season, he may find himself on the bench when he comes back next season…..
