Joel Campbell: This Arsenal star can be the world’s best
Joel Campbell is expecting big things from Hector Bellerin at Arsenal
Joel Campbell is backing Hector Bellerin to develop into one of the best full-backs in the world at Arsenal.
The 20-year-old Spaniard has been in brilliant form for the north London club so far this season and has been a regular fixture in the first team.
Bellerin’s rise to prominence kept Mathieu Debuchy out of the team and led to the Frenchman joining Bordeaux on loan until the end of the season last month.
Bellerin has made 23 Premier League appearances for Arsenal so far this season and played the full 90 minutes as the north London side beat Bournemouth 2-0 on Sunday.
And Costa Rica international Campbell believes that Bellerin has the potential to develop into a world-class full-back at Emirates Stadium.
Campbell told Arsenal Player: “We speak the same language, so it is much easier to communicate with each other.
“We enjoy a very good relationship on and off the pitch. That helps us a lot when we are playing, by speaking with each other, helping each other and giving indications to give our best to the team.
“He is enjoying a very high level, but I think he can give even more. He has the potential to be one of the best in the world.
“He is showing that now, but he is still very young and he has a long way ahead. So I think the best of Hector is yet to come, we haven’t seen it yet.”
Both Campbell and Bellerin will be hoping to feature when Arsenal take on Leicester City at Emirates Stadium in Sunday’s crunch Premier League showdown.
The Gunners are currently five points behind the Foxes,.
