I want to tell you, I might as well do, about a boy who can do anything.
He comes from Barça, his name is Héctor Bellerín Bellerín Bellerín.
Whether you watch Arsenal on TV, go to games, or see Arsenal as an away team when they visit your own club’s ground you may have heard this towards the back end of the season.
Héctor Bellerín broke into the side during the 2014/15 campaign, and the 20 year-old is already a favourite among fans – hence the chant.
“I remember the first time I heard it – we were playing QPR away,” Bellerín told Arsenal Player.
“I started hearing something like Bellerin and I thought, ‘Is that really a song for me?’. And then they sang it.
“I couldn’t believe it. To play away at QPR and hear my song was amazing.”
Arsenal’s away support is always incredible. It’s fantastic just to be a part of it a few times a season, so I can’t even imagine what it’s like to hear the fans singing your name.
“The away support is really strong at Arsenal and to hear that they’re cheering for you, singing your name, you can’t really ask for more. That was one of the highlights of my season.
“In the beginning when you start playing you hope that one day you will have your own song. Once that happened for the first time, it felt like everything had fallen into place and it was a great experience.”
The Spanish defender had a fantastic season, breaking into the team. He’s now probably the first choice right-back heading into 2015/16 and deservedly so.
The last campaign saw Bellerín make 28 first-team appearances, score his first two Arsenal goals, and receive his first call-up to the Spanish u21 squad. Oh, and he got his own song.
I can’t wait to find out what 2015/16 and beyond have in store for the right-back.
