HECTOR BELLERIN SAYS THAT HIS LOYALTY TO ARSENE WENGER IS WORTH MORE THAN MONEY

Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin has accentuated his loyalty to Arsene Wenger amid “flattering” transfer links to former club Barcelona and Manchester City.

There has been fresh speculation of a possible summer swoop by Barcelona for Bellerin, in spite of the fact the 22-year-old signed a new long-term contract with the Gunners in November.

Bellerin has not ruled out coming back to his home-town club, yet the defender additionally expressed how important Wenger has been to his profession.

He told Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo: “The loyalty to this person is worth more than money, it’s something very important to me. That he’s there carries a lot of weight for me.”

“Any player would be flattered by interest from Barca. It’s the best club in the world and that is very nice.”

“The fact that I grew up in the Barca academy also makes this a bit more special, although for now I’m focused on these games and on the season, and the rest will come later.”

“When I left Barca my idea was not to return, because my exit was a little complicated.”

“Just as other players who leave saying they will return, I went to live an adventure in England, to try to be a footballer and not return.”

“I left Barcelona because I felt the club did not have faith in me, I didn’t feel valued. I was disillusioned.”

“But you don’t know what the future holds and you cannot close any doors.”

As for interest from City, he included: “I know there was interest. It’s flattering that a coach like Pep Guardiola thinks of me. That’s a sign that I’m doing things well.”

“It’s very nice that there are several big clubs interested in me, but if one of them is Barca then it’s special.”
