bellerin and walcott

A member of Arsenal’s first team squad has received praise from one of football’s most legendary names. 

Hector Bellerin has become an integral part of Arsene Wenger’s starting eleven over the past 18 months after emerging from the club’s youth team.

The Spaniard won the award of ‘Catalan Young Player of the year’ in 2015 before reportedly attracting the interest of clubs like Barcelona and Juventus during the summer.

And when asked about Bellerin’s performances, former Brazil international and AC Milan legend Cafu who also featured as a right-back, had nothing but praise for the Arsenal ace.

“Bellerin is much like me at 21,” Cafu said in a Q&A with Arsenal’s official Twitter page.

“He is very fast and very impressive. [He has a] big, big future!”.
