Bellerin talks up the moment he heard his song being sung by the Arsenal fans.



Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has divulged how it felt to hear the Gunners fans sing his name for the first time.

The Spaniard, who had only one first-team match under his belt before the start of the 2014/15 season, made 24 appearances for Arsene Wenger's side, elevating him to becoming a fan’s favourite.

“I remember the first time I heard it - we were playing QPR away,” Bellerin 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. 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 20-year-old, who scored twice in last term, also reckons the fans accepted him because he's one of the players to have made it from the academy youth system to the first-team.

“The fans rate that Arsenal don’t just buy players, they make them the players they are,” he said. “Arsenal fans are really proud of that and I think that’s a great thing.

"When players like Francis, Jack or myself come up, the fans should be proud that their team is doing what they’re doing. That’s a great thing Arsenal do.”
