Arsenal captain Arteta heaps praise on Bellerin

first_img1 Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta has heaped praise on new boy Hector Bellerin.The young full-back has broken into the Gunners defence and saved them a packet in the transfer window by settling straight into the side.“I have been really impressed with him since he came into the first team – perhaps even more with his attitude than his quality, because I knew all about that,” Arteta said.“I said at the start of the season that, in terms of the young players, he was the closest to making a breakthrough because he has the attributes to become one of the club’s most important players.“He is very brave, his decision making is good and he is a great athlete. He is very open, he is willing to understand what the manager and the team want from him on the pitch and his attitude and contribution has been really good.”The 19-year-old moved from Barcelona to the Arsenal academy in 2011 and has now made nine Premier League appearances this season.
