What Hector Bellerin has said about Arsenal Fan TV is spot on

Arsenal Fan TV certainly divides opinion.

Whenever Arsenal lose, many football fans can’t wait to watch a bunch of Gooners rant and rave about what they’ve just seen.

However, fellow Arsenal supporters aren’t particularly keen to associate themselves with a group of people that continually moan about the players, manager and the club in general.

But what do the Arsenal players themselves think about it?

Well, luckily for us, the question was put to Hector Bellerin at the Oxford Union last week.


And his answer summed up Arsenal Fan TV perfectly.

“It’s so wrong for someone who claims to be a fan and their success is fed off a failure. How can that be a fan?” Bellerin told the Oxford Union.

“If a coach comes to me and says you’ve done something bad I’m going to take that advice. If someone from Arsenal Fan TV says this guy needs to do this or that I’m not going to listen to him.

“They’re entitled to their opinion, the way they want to do it. If people find it funny, then go watch it.”

And Bellerin even admitted that some players watch it – even if it’s only by accident.

“I think there are players that just go on the internet so they’re going to watch Arsenal Fan TV. It does sometimes pop up in your timeline.

“I think there are some people hustling, just trying to make money their way which everyone is entitled to do. For us players it doesn’t affect us. If people want to have fun with it, have fun. But for us when you grow you realise what it’s important to listen to and what not to take.”

Well said, Hector.

Arsenal Fan TV would have had very little to moan about on Thursday night as Arsene Wenger’s side ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against Ostersunds in the Europa League last-32.

It means they’ve virtually booked their place in the last-16 of the competition and can now rest some players in the second-leg – which falls days before their Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
