Hector Bellerin trolls Robin van Persie in Arsenal Q&A session

Published Add your comment

Hector Bellerin has firmly established himself as a fan favourite at Arsenal.

Ever since making his debut for the Gunners against Borussia Dortmund in 2014 the Spaniard has thoroughly impressed, both on and off the pitch.

It's on the pitch where he's made the biggest difference, of course, having added pace and consistency at the back for Arsene Wenger's side.

Well, as it turns out, he's a bit of a joker away from the Emirates turf.

In a recent Facebook live session with Arsenal, Bellerin answered a number of questions from the club's fans.

One of which was sent in from a supporter using the Twitter handle 'VanItaliaPersie' - which relates to former striker Robin van Persie - and his reaction was brilliant.

'What is your advice for young players like us hoping to play for Arsenal?' is what Bellerin was asked, to which he immediately replied: "By the way, I do not like that name."

The presenter's reaction said it all - and you can watch a full video of Bellerin's live session below.

Arsenal fans are growing increasingly concerned that they will lose the Spanish right-back at some point in the future, but for now, he seems happy in north London.

Speaking about his decision to leave Barcelona in August, he said: "There were many factors but I was the one that chose to come here.

"They were unhappy when it happened but I chose my path and I am really happy with the chance that I took."


Bellerin featured on what was a difficult night for Arsenal against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

The Gunners were pegged back for the vast majority of the Champions League clash but scraped a point thanks to Alexis Sanchez.

David Ospina was ultimately the hero, though, after making a number of vital saves - and Arsene Wenger recognised just how an important a role he played.

The Frenchman said, per Sky Sports: "I have two world-class goalkeepers. I can give them both games.


"If they do not play, you can't keep two world-class goalkeepers."

"We have a rule that the keepers know (when they will play). It's important to have clear rules like that. They know what the rules are for the season. If they change, I'll tell them.

"On what [Ospina] delivered tonight, he has the right to stay in the team for the next Champions League game."
