Hector Bellerin Defends Himself After Reaction to His Arsenal Fan TV Comments

Hector Bellerin has defended himself after the reaction to his comments about Arsenal Fan TV.

The Arsenal right back spoke at the Oxford Union earlier this week, sharing his opinion on a number of important issues.

But whatever he had to say on the club was always going to lead to more headlines – and he provided a significant line when he approached the subject of Arsenal Fan TV and the YouTube channel’s meteoric success over recent years.

According to reports, Bellerin said: “It’s so wrong for someone who claims to be a fan and their success is fed off a failure. How can that be a fan?

“If a coach comes to me and says you’ve done something bad I’m going to take that advice.

“If someone from Arsenal Fan TV says this guy needs to do this or that I’m not going to listen to him.”

He also went on to accuse them of being hustlers and told how many players in the squad have never seen the channel.

And some of those comments have led to a negative reaction from some section of the support, including this response from Robbie of Arsenal Fan TV.

But Bellerin has defended himself over the comments in two tweets this afternoon:

Bellerin makes a point – he covers a whole host of more important issues than this one in his Q&A. But, surely when he agreed to do the interview he was aware that his comments about Arsenal would attract most attention?
