Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin became the first ever active Premier League player to speak at the prestigious Oxford Union. His speech was about his experience in football and his life in England vs Spain.
“It was like night and day, the difference between Barcelona and Arsenal.” the Spanish international said.
“At Barcelona I was just 8-16, when I came to Arsenal I was a professional footballer.”
“At Barcelona we were just kicking around on the pitch, at Arsenal, my first day, there were no balls.”
Outside of football, Bellerin is passionate about fashion, but his choice of clothing and hobby has been scrutinized by fans.
“So many people Tweet me saying focus on the game, having seen me at fashion shows or whatever, and I am just like I don’t worry.”
“I am a human being. I have passions, I have hobbies but equally, I am a footballer and that is my main focus.”
