Hector Bellerin reveals why he left Arsenal for Real Betis

A long summer for Hector Bellerin

It was a long transfer window for Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin. Thought to want out of north London from the beginning of the summer, it was not until deadline day that his desire was realised.

Having at one time thought to have been on the radar of Inter Milan, it was instead Spanish outfit Real Betis who snapped up the 26-year-old on a loan deal in the dying embers of the window.

Arsenal, in turn, added Takehiro Tomiyasu to their side as a replacement.

Bellerin reveals why he joined Betis

Speaking for the first time since his move, the loanee spoke of his happiness to play for Betis since it was his father’s favourite club:

 “Being able to make my father happy with a dream that is his, and fulfilling it for him, makes me very excited.

“It is a feeling my father has instilled since I was little. As a child I was a bit of a turncoat, but he forced me to wear the Betis shirt.”

He also hinted at the weather being a reason for his departure from the Emirates stadium, bizarrely saying:

“I wanted the sun and heat, but I didn’t come here on vacation”

Bellerin will be remembered fondly by the Arsenal faithful, with the defender having made 239 appearances to date for the north London outfit. However, with the addition of Tomiyasu, it seems that there will be little for the Spaniard to return to after his year-long loan.
