Fans Shocked At Hearing Hector Bellerin Speak Fluent Spanish After Just Six Months At Real Betis

Fans are shocked at hearing former Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin speak fluent Spanish after just six months at Real Betis.

​Bellerin, 26, spent a decade in London after moving to Arsenal from Barcelona in 2011.

He graduated from the club's youth academy and went onto make over 200 appearances for the Gunners. 

The defender left England for Spain last summer, signing a season-long loan deal at Betis - where he's played 19 games in all competitions.

He played in his side's 2-0 league defeat to Villarreal last weekend and stunned people on social media with his post-match interview. 

Bellerin had a positive attitude in defeat, but it was his accent that got social media talking. 

One tweeted: "This man looks like he dreamt of giving post match interviews in Spanish for a long time."​

A second wrote: "Why is it so strange to hear a Spanish player talk in Spanish???"​

A third added: "How the hell is this the very first time I’ve heard Hector Bellerin speak Spanish and I find it super weird​."

Obviously, Bellerin grew up in Spain, though he developed a hybrid accent during his time at Arsenal.

He was beginning to sound cockney with a Spanish twang. 

But he's fully reverted back to his native tongue have returned home.
