Arteta’s men keep on fighting despite their lack of consistency and they are “learning to suffer,” says Bellerin.
Arsenal player Hector Bellerin believes they are on the right track thanks to the positivity that their coach, Mikel Arteta, injects to the players and hopefully they will prove their worth by becoming more consistent.
The Gunners, who ended their last match in a 0-0 draw with the Leeds, need to learn from their mistakes claims Bellerin and though their performance was praise-worthy the player wished to see more from his teammates.
“I am happy with the character the team has shown,” Bellerin told reporters following the game.
“We have solidified our defence throughout this season and that’s something we have proved in many games.”
“We are learning how to suffer and that is really important nowadays when we don’t have control of the ball and it becomes vital that we don’t concede.”
“But I can’t say that I feel happy with the draw because even when we were down to 10 men on Sunday we still had chances to score and that’s what makes the difference in the long run.”
Arsenal who was left with 10 men after the dismissal of Nicolas Pepe will not blame the player for the result admitted Bellerin.
“Everyone has a hot head straight after the game and there is a lot of adrenaline flowing,” he added.
“So these things probably need to wait for later in the week.”
“It’s something that must stay in the dressing-room but I am sure we will manage it just fine.”
The Spaniard further talked about their upcoming Europa League game and their aim to move forward.
“We are showing signs of improvement in every game but we need to start winning again.”
“Against Leeds, everyone would say that the roughness we showed in the second-half is something that this team didn’t have in the past.”
“So there are many good things happening for us, but at the end of the day you win by scoring goals and this is something we need to start building on.”
“We need to put our chances to bed and once we do that the results will come and we can start getting more confident.”
