Hector Bellerin and Jeremy Corbyn Speak Spanish to Shut Out Piers Morgan

Hector Bellerin and Jeremy Corbyn Speak Spanish to Shut Out Piers Morgan

Hector Bellerin and Jeremy Corbyn reacted to Piers Morgan claiming they spoke Spanish at an event just so he could be shut out of a conversation – by speaking more Spanish.

The Arsenal defender and Labour leader – who is a big Gunners fan – met at the GQ Men of the Year awards earlier this month and Morgan claimed in his dailymail.co.uk column that he was shut out of a conversation between the pair because he couldn’t speak Spanish.

 

According to Morgan: “Later, fellow Arsenal fan Jeremy Corbyn came over to speak to him. When I tried to interrupt, the Labour leader – whose wife is Mexican – promptly switched to fluent Spanish to shut me out of the conversation.”

Bellerin got wind of Morgan’s thoughts on this exchange and took to Twitter to have more fun with the Good Morning Britain presenter:

And Corbyn wasn’t slow in responding:

That roughly translates to: “It was a pleasure to meet you. It is better to not say it what we were talking about, you would not understand it. Very good game on Sunday.”

Bellerin then came back with more Spanish:

That roughly translates to: “Thank you very much Mr Corbyn and of course, it’s between us! It was a pleasure to meet you!”

And, surprise, surprise, Morgan couldn’t resist getting involved:

We imagine a lot of Arsenal fans will love Bellerin and Corbyn’s banter at the expense of Morgan.
