The Spanish right-back is one of the few bright spots in the Gunners’ first-team this season, with protests and demonstrations marring what could be Arsene Wenger’s final few months with the club.
Bellerin celebrated his 22nd birthday yesterday but given the club’s rather tender state, he opted to keep his celebrations on social media understated, by simply thanking well-wishers for their kind comments.
But what he got back was demands to simply visit a barber:

You get the picture.
To be fair, Hector, you probably could do with at least a little trim at the barbers, and it looks like it could be a good few years before you pull off a proper man’s beard.
Just a thought, mate – just a thought.
