The Premier League returns today but we will not be in action until tomorrow where we’ll host City rivals Tottenham.
Arsenal youngster Hector Bellerin has admitted that he desires to be the captain of Arsenal in the foreseeable future.
Bellerin grew to prominence in the penultimate season when he replaced injured Mathieu Debuchy and he has become one of the Gunner fan’s favorite.
There are report that the Spaniard is wanted by his former club Barcelona but he has been able to play-down any possible return to Camp Nou.
Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s game with the Lilywhytes, he was quizzed if he sees himself as a future skipper at the Emirates, the right-back told Ball Street: ‘Of course.
‘That’s something that I would be really, really grateful of and it would be my pleasure to be the captain of Arsenal. I love the club.
‘I have been here for such a long time now and I think it’s important for the club to have young leaders as well – not just the big fishes who have been around for a long time or who have played a lot of games.
‘I think it’s out of your character and I don’t feel like the young kid anymore even though I’m only 21. I’ve played enough games.
‘I’m really happy that the boss [Arsene Wenger] and Ivan [Gazidis] think that of me.’
