Arsenala s Hector Bellerin praised his senior teammates for helping him find his form after a difficult start against Dortmund.
a The back-up of the players we have makes you look good as well,a Bellerin said, in an interview with Telegraph. a They have helped me since the beginning and are my family.
a They have been young players as well so they help you in everything they can. They make you feel like one more in the dressing room. We are lucky in this club, we young players get the opportunities and it is important when you get them that you need to take them.a
With Debuchy set to be back in the squad, Bellerin is likely to be relegated to the bench, with Arsene Wenger probably banking on the Frenchmana s experience during a very important time of the season where mistakes can prove very costly.
However, Bellerin was not too worried and was happy his senior partner is back in the squad. Bellerin said, a Every single minute you play helps you a lot and gives you experience.a
a I am happy that now, after not so good performances in the beginning, the coach has still put confidence in me and given me minutes. The chances always come through injuries, which is not a nice thing.
a Now we are going to have Debuchy back and I am happy for him, but when you get your chance, you need to do the best you can. I have done my best to take this opportunity.a
It has been a great season so far for Hector Bellerin, and he is without a doubt the no. 2 at Right Back for Arsenal, beating the likes of Calum Chambers and a Carl Jenkinson, who is currently out on loan. Whether Jenkinson has made enough strides this season will be assessed during the summer, but until then Bellerin will know that hea s made a huge impact on the team and the manager and will be looking to continue the good work.
For Arsenal fans, youngsters from La Masia will always be a source of pain, after their prized possession Cesc Fabregas left for Barcelona citing a wish to play for his boyhood club. There is always the fear that someday Barcelona will come calling their a Barca DNAa again for Bellerin if he continues the same kind of performances. However, the Spaniard ruled out any such worries. He said, a It was difficult because I left my family, my friends, but my dream has always been to be a footballer, not play at Barca.
a Sometimes the train passes and you take it or not. Many people called me crazy when I left, but I’m showing that I was right. Life does not end at Barca.a
Arsenal fans will hope that he stays true to his word and continues to put in top performances for the club for many years to come.
