Arsenal legend Ian Wright has sent a brilliant message to Hector Bellerin after the Spaniard left the Emirates on transfer deadline day.
The defender spent over a decade at Arsenal and was nothing but a true professional. He gave his all to our football club every time he stepped on the pitch, and true Arsenal fans will forever appreciate his service.
After 10 long years, it was time for Bellerin to move on. He tried really hard to secure a permanent switch, but he could only manage a season-long loan move to Real Betis, a club very close to his heart.
Ian Wright sends message to Hector Bellerin
Wrighty knows the Gunners better than all of us. He has met almost everyone, spent time with them and knows exactly what the club means to the players. Bellerin arguably ranks very high on his list of favourite Arsenal players.
The Arsenal legend heaped praise on the way Bellerin has represented Arsenal on the pitch. He claimed that everyone associated with the club has learnt a lot thanks to him, and wished him well on his adventure back home in Spain.
He wrote in one of his Instagram stories: “Always represented the club with pure love and respect. We have all learnt so much from you. Enjoy your time at Betis.”
The Insider’s View:
Bellerin only deserves love and respect from Arsenal supporters. Yes, things have not always been positive for him after his serious knee injury, but he has always represented our club with pride.
He loves Arsenal more than many people believe and it’s a shame that he’s leaving. However, it was the best thing for all parties involved, and we can only wish him well as he embarks on a new journey.
Bellerin is expected to come back to Arsenal next season following the end of his loan spell. It is unlikely that he will get back into the side, but stranger things have happened in football, and it won’t be a bad thing by any means, especially if he has a brilliant season at Betis.
