Hector Bellerin has revealed that although he’s ‘gutted’ to be out for four weeks through injury, he’s already working hard to come back.
After the right-back was sent home early from international duty with Spain’s u21 squad, reports began to circulate that his November was over and that he was facing a lengthy layoff due to an ankle injury.
On Thursday, Arsene Wenger confirmed the claims, saying that, due to a strong challenge from Danny Rose late on in the North London Derby, Bellerin is out for four weeks.
The defender took to Instagram the same day to share what he’d already been up to in the gym, claiming that he’s gutted to be out.
The 21-year-old misses Arsenal’s trip to Manchester United on Saturday and as a key starter, he’ll be a miss. Presumably, Carl Jenkinson will step up in his place. What a way to be reintroduced to the Premier League eh? Old Trafford.
