Hector Bellerin says Arsenal and Barcelona are night and day.
The right-back swapped Spain for London in 2011 and has blossomed into one of the top players in the Premier League.
His form dipped after injury last season but he looks back on track.
He was linked with a move back to Barcelona and may be tempted again this summer if Arsenal fail to reach the Champions League.
And he admits his experiences at Arsenal were very different from Barcelona.
“It was like night and day, the difference between Barcelona and Arsenal,” Bellerin said.
“At Barcelona I was just eight-to-16 years old, when I came to Arsenal I was a professional footballer. At Barcelona we were just kicking around on the pitch, at Arsenal, my first day, there were no balls.”
