Bellerin reacts to drawing Arsenal in the Europa League with Sporting

Hector Bellerin will return to the Emirates in the next round of the Europa League after Arsenal drew his present club Sporting Lisbon in the competition.

The full-back spent a decade at the Emirates before leaving at the end of last season to return to Barcelona.

The Spanish side sold him to Sporting in the last transfer window and now he faces Arsenal over two legs in the Europa League.

After the draw was made, the Spaniard took to his Instagram and made an emotional post.

Bellerin reposted Sporting’s original post with love emojis in white, red and green colours and a house.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Returning to the Emirates would be very emotional for Bellerin after the years he spent at the club.

The Spaniard had good times and bad times on our books, but over he did ok, especially earlier on.

He left because we added newer and better players to the group under Mikel Arteta, but fans will welcome him well and we will remember him for when he was at the club.

But we will beat them, hopefully, home and away because we want to win the competition.

  1. Yes!!! I quite agree and align myself with JustAersenal assertion of, Arsenal will at away and home beat Hectic Bellerib’s Sporting Lisbon team side. In the 2 legged match of the last 16 round of the Europa League Cup competition this season.
    Aside of Arsenal of getting the better side of Sporting Lisbon in the 2 legged match. If the should be an Arsenal Legend Hector Bellerin after his 10 years service at the club, happens to be in the Sporting team for the match. The Gooners at the Ems to watch the match should give Hector Bellerin a good reception clapping their hands for him and singing his name to give him warm welcome back visit.
    But that’s where it will stop. For, immediately the match start, the Gooners will en mass start to support the Gunners playing in the match rooting for them to win the match. And will no longer mind if Bellerin is on the field if he is for Sporting playing.

      1. Ha! Not quite was he! A decent player who at his best was excellent, but already making noises about Barca before an injury to his knee slowed him and he became mostly ineffective. It will be very interesting to see how Martinelli or Trossard perform against him.
        Best of luck Hector.

  2. Not a bad draw to play sporting Lisbon, hopefully we use most of our fringe players in the first leg.

    This is a physical side apart from that they offer nothing more.

  3. Hopefully we can rest Gabi M for the first game and give
    Kiwior a go.. Ödegaard also seems to be in need of rest!!
    A home game next to look forward too!!

  4. Oh how I HOPE that this really poor defender Bellerin does play against us! Whoever plays against him will have a field day. Martinelli or Trossard possibly.

    Whoever it is, he will be licking his lips at the prospect of this hopeless defender being up against him.
    I was gobsmacked at how he managed to remain here and in the team much of that time, all those years when our defence was, essentially, a sick joke defence!
