Arsenal star Hector Bellerin informed fans through his Instagram page that he’s ready for pre-season training which begins tomorrow as the players gear up for the new season.
Bellerin enjoyed a sensational campaign last year, cementing himself as a first-team star while also ending the season as our first choice right-back.
After being handed his first Champions League start against Borussia Dortmund in December, few can believe the turnaround we’ve witnessed in the former Barcelona academy product.
The 20-year-old has been relaxing since our FA Cup final triumph in May, with a brief spell back in London to model the new home kit the only interruption in his extended break.
Despite Mathieu Debuchy’s price-tag and age, Bellerin will take some shifting in the first XI with his complete abilities a perfect fit with our philosophy.
Debuchy is undoubtedly the better defender, but his limited skills when entering the opposition’s half can sometimes kill our attacks, something which is rare when Bellerin starts.
Hopefully, the young Spaniard can use the pre-season period to become physically stronger and dominate the right flank on a consistent basis.
