Arsenal and Spain full-back Hector Bellerin is majorly known for his extravagant fashion sense rather than his exploits on the field, to say the least. And to make it even better, the 23-year-old showed off his newest ink on his right thigh which reflects his shirt number – Two – and in a way, his commitment towards the Gunners.
The first glance of Bellerin’s ink was seen when Arsenal welcomed Leicester City at the Emirates during the match week 9. The Gunners had a dreadful start as it was Bellerin whose own goal gave visitors the lead, but Mesut Ozil’s goal right at the death of first gave Arsenal a life-line. And ironically, it was Bellerin who assisted the goal.
Unai Emery introduced Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by the stroke of an hour and it only took the Gabon international a couple of minutes to make his mark and for the second time in the game, Bellerin was there to make an assist. Despite an early own goal, Arsenal won in style and Bellerin was the centre-piece in almost all of Arsenal’s attacks.
Arsenal took on Sporting in their Europa League tie recently and it was during the warm-up when the cameras had a closer and in-depth look towards the Spaniard’s ink. Bellerin has clearly tattooed this after October 7, as his thigh was clean as a whistle when Arsenal took on Fulham on the date. The Gunners ran riots as a brace from Lacazette and Aubameyang gave Emery’s men a 5-1 win away from home.
Bellerin has time and again showed his bright side of life by participating in various charitable projects. Quite recently, he took part in planting trees at Arsenal’s training base alongside Petr Cech and Aaron Ramsey. Teaming up with Octopus Energy, the trio planted more than 100 trees and while talking about it, he said,
“It’s important for us to leave the planet as clean as we can, and it’s positive to take these steps.
“We’ve helped to plant trees, and I think it’s important.
“Arsenal being a massive platform, with loads of fans around the world, this is a good way to encourage.
“It’s the little things like this that you can do – little by little – that makes a big improvement.”
