Hector Bellerin reveals the Arsenal player with the hardest shot

Asides from the hard graft players put in on the pitch and at the training ground, there's a lighter and more fun side to life amongst footballers.

Social media is probably the biggest give away of some of the antics players get up to at the training ground, in the dressing room or in their spare time.

And Arsenal's Hector Bellerin, who signed a new long-term deal at the Emirates last month, has dished the dirt on his teammates.

While some players' reputations have been enhanced by what the Barcelona-born right-back had to say about them, others will have wished he kept his mouth shut.

Bellerin has been at the club since 2011. So he is an a good position to make big calls about some of his teammates who hadn't been at the club until quite recently.

As per the Mirror, Bellerin revealed that summer signing Granit Xhaka has the hardest shot in the Arsenal squad - having arrived from Borussia Monchengladbach prior to Euro 2016, for a fee of around £30 million.

It's good to see that Arsene Wenger's summer recruit is making a good impression on his teammates. However, another of the Frenchman's summer signings isn't making quite as positive an impression on Bellerin.


The 21-year-old's compatriot, Lucas Perez, who joined the Gunners for £17 million from Deportivo La Coruna in the summer, is the biggest moaner at the club according to Bellerin. While fellow Spaniard Santi Cazorla has been dubbed as the biggest joker.

Bellerin believes Cazorla is the club's most skillful player, while Arsenal star man Mesut Ozil is the club's best passer.

There is certainly no man better to judge who is the toughest tackler than the right-back, who was split between Gabriel and Francis Coquelin, while also labelling the latter as the Gunners' hardest working in training.

Manager of the future

Petr Cech may want to get his coaching badges completed, as Bellerin believes he is the most likely of the club's current crop of players to swap the pitch for the dugout. But it is Per Mertesacker's intelligence that stands out for Bellerin.

Nacho Monreal may well just try to forget that his Spain teammate called him the worst dancer at the club, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is at the other end of that spectrum, according to Bellerin, who also labelled the England international as the club's best dressed player.

It's seems the Spanish right-back may have created some egos amongst his teammates, while other egos may have been broken.
