“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.

Bellerin says Arsenal are happy to have Nelson and the way the young player has adapted his life at the big stage is quite remarkable.
But the Spain international also has some advice for Nelson and believes that humbleness is the best thing now and he has to maintain his focus on the game only despite all the other attractions.

“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.”
