Hector Bellerin delights Arsenal fans on Facebook with Robin van Persie jibe

By  | 

Hector Bellerin is rapidly becoming an Arsenal fan favourite at the north London club.

With 60 Premier League appearances at the age of just 21, the Spaniard has made the right-back position his own.

And during a Facebook live to promote Puma, Bellerin further endeared himself to Gooners as he made his thoughts about former team-mate Robin van Persie perfectly clear. (The moment in question can be found at around 2:30)

After the presenter poses a question asked by “VanItaliaPersie”, Bellerin quickly responds “By the way I don’t like that name,” before giving a more sincere answer.

Bellerin joined Arsenal in the summer of 2011, and would have watched van Persie haul the Gunners to fourth place before leaving for rivals Manchester United, where he would help Sir Alex Ferguson win his last Premier League title.

Clearly, he hasn’t forgiven the Dutchman.

Here's a little extra sport. BallTalk TV ask who is the real special one – Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola?
