Bellerin waves goodbye to Betis as he prepares Arsenal return

Hector Bellerin made an emotional farewell to boyhood club Real Betis as the fullback prepares to return to Arsenal after his loan move. 

Bellerin spent last season on loan in Seville, with the move helping the Spaniard 'fall in love again' with football. 

"Even if I tried I'm finding it very difficult to express what this year has meant to me," he said.  "

There are no words I can find to describe my feelings, so hopefully, these pictures will help you all understand.

"Thanks to everyone in the Betis universe for helping me fall in love again with this sport, for all your passion and for making me feel like one of your own from the start. 

"Thanks to my family and my people for their unconditional love and support and for introducing me from early to this passion called Betis. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU and I hope we can meet again. Viva el Betis."

The 27-year-old is also keen to return to Betis and is hopeful an agreement will be reached soon. 

"I have made my position clear to both Betis and Arsenal: I want to stay at Betis," he explained.

"Now we have two months to find the best solution. I made an effort to come here and I am ready to make any effort to stay at Betis again."
