Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been responding to the news that Spanish right-back, Hector Bellerin, won’t be playing against AC Milan in tonight’s Europa League tie between the clubs due to injury. The news has come directly from Bellerin as he posted on Twitter that he wouldn’t be playing owing to an injury that he’s been carrying for a while.
Arsenal fans’ opinions of Hector Bellerin have been negative as of late, as the 22-year-old is one of a number of players who’ve been under-performing in this season’s abysmal Arsenal side. However, the fans seem to have put the player’s performances on the pitch to one side as they wished the ex-Barcelona academy man a speedy recovery from his yet unknown injury.
The Gunners propping our bar up will be hoping Arsenal can get a positive result at the San Siro in Milan tonight without their electric full-back as they aim to rescue their season with Europa League glory. With that in mind, you can read the Arsenal fans’ verdict on Bellerin here:
Thank you for playing through the pain. You deserve better than the criticism aimed at you from our own fans.
