“I disagreed with Wenger When He Said This About Me” – Bellerin

Hector Bellerin rise to fame at Arsenal was sudden and the youngster has grown from leaps and bounds since making his debut for Arsenal in 2014.

Last year Wenger said: ”Considering his first game, at Dortmund, and what I think of him today, that’s credit to him, because he had a bit of a nightmare away from home in Dortmund.”

The former Barcelona man is a vital cog at The Emirates these days and he didn’t think he was that bad in his first game.

He told Sport magazine: “I saw it a completely different way.

“I just thought: ‘Listen, this is Dortmund away in the Champions League, so I’ve got the hardest game that I can play out of the way. Now, whatever comes, it’s going to be easier for me’.

“That was how I was looking at it.

“Since then there haven’t been many games that I have had all that pressure – you know, for an 18-year-old kid to play in that stadium is hard.

“But it was the right moment for me because I don’t think I was as ready as I should have been at that point.

“It made me realise how much I still had to work and improve.”
