Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has been very impressed by Arsenal’s budding star Reiss Nelson and has adviced the teenager to keep his feet on the floor to be successful in the bigger prospective.
Reiss Nelson is the next big name at the Emirates
The Gunners defender started his life as a winger in Barcelona, but after he joined Arsenal in 2011 he has slowly adapted to his wing back role and now has emerged one of the best right backs in the Premier League, and of course one of the bests of the future for both Arsenal and Spain.
Nelson, 17, has been a part of Arsenal academy but has made rapid progress that Wenger gave him an opportunity in the pres season and the young player impressed everyone there. And after that Nelson has gone on to make in the first team squad this season and has played all the cup games so far.
Bellerin is also overwhelmed by Nelson’s attributes and has heaped praises on the young England youth international.
“Reiss is one of the players who, since they’ve stepped on to the first-team training pitch, has shown that there’s something quite different about him,” the 22-year-old told Arsenal Player.
“He needs to keep his feet on the floor in the same way that he’s been doing up until now and, if he keeps going the way he’s going, I’m sure he will have a great career. It’s a great opportunity for him to be able to play in these competitions now and I think he’s taking his opportunities really well.”
