Many Arsenal fans have been gushing over Hector Bellerin after he captained the club in their 4-0 win over Standard Liege in the Europa League last night.
Is Unai Emery the right man for Arsenal?
The Spanish full-back made his first start for the senior side in more than nine months after his cruciate ligament injury back in January in the win over Chelsea.
Bellerin said he was grateful towards his teammates and the coaches for the opportunity given to him, stating he was ‘honoured’ to wear the armband (via Twitter).
The former Barcelona academy player was named as one of Unai Emery’s five captains last week, ranking third in the list set by the manager (via Squawka).
Bellerin’s return from injury comes amid an interview from Ainsley Maitland-Niles saying he’s still learning to defend (via Sky Sports).
After being named captain in his first start for the club this season, many Arsenal fans gushed over Bellerin as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
