Arsenal Defender Hector Bellerin Has Ripped Into ArsenalFanTV

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has weighed in on ArsenalFanTV and it's fair to say he's anything but a fan.

The YouTube channel, runb by host Robbie Lyle, has become a viral sensation because of the opinions, rants and moans from the Gooners such as DT, Claude, Troopz, Ty and Moh.

It has 650,000 subscribers and regularly reels in the views whenever Arsenal have lost or had a negative result as that is when the meltdowns outside the grounds ensue.

Gary Neville famously criticised the channel after Arsenal's loss to Chelsea, before appearing in a video with the main guests and clearing the air.

Arsenal Fan TV certainly divides opinion, and so a student at Oxford Union decided to ask Bellerin what he thought when he came to the University for a q and a.

Speaking in his wonderful spanish-cockney accent, the former Barcelona youth player pulled no punches.

"It's so wrong for someone who claims to be a fan and their success is fed off a failure. How can that be a fan?" Bellerin said.

"It's just people hustling, trying to make money their way, which everyone is entitled to do.

"If a coach comes to me and says you've done something bad I'm going to take that advice. If someone from Arsenal Fan TV says this guy needs to do this or that I'm not going to listen to him.

"They're entitled to their opinion, the way they want to do it. If people find it funny, then go watch it."

It's common practice for football fans to head straight on to ArsenalFanTV after Arsenal lose, and Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has even admitted having a browse and memorably had some beef with Troopz.

Bellerin says Arsenal players don't willingly watch it but naturally it comes up on their feeds.

"I think there are players that just go on the internet so they're going to watch Arsenal Fan TV," he added.

"It does sometimes pop up in your timeline. For us players it doesn't affect us. If people want to have fun with it, have fun. But for us when you grow you realise what it's important to listen to and what not to take."

What do you think of Bellerin's comments? Where do you stand on fan channels as a concept?
