Some Arsenal fans on social media have been reacting after Hector Bellerin’s debut for Real Betis.
Bellerin departed the Gunners on deadline day, heading to La Liga to join Betis on loan, and he’s now played his first game for his new team.
Despite the fact Bellerin struggled towards the end of this Arsenal career, he’s actually started rather brightly for his new club.
Indeed, Bellerin played his part in a 2-1 win away from home against Granada, and he put in a strong showing at both ends of the pitch.
The right-back made two key passes and won three ground duels as Betis secured all three points, and Arsenal fans have been reacting to this showing.
Interestingly, fans had mixed feelings about this strong debut. Some fans were quick to be pessimistic, blaming Arteta for holding him back during his time at the Emirates, while others were happy to see him performing well.
Here’s what Gunners supporters have been saying on social media…
Saw the game… Can’t believe that this was the same player that we saw in arsenal shirt in 1-2 last seasons. He was not extraordinary. But he played with such confidence. Sometimes it is good to change environnement.
