Hector Bellerin says Mikel Arteta has been like a 'big brother' and admitted he tried to keep him out of trouble when he made his first-team breakthrough.

The two Spaniards both joined Arsenal in 2011, with Bellerin joining as a scholar from Barcelona while Arteta had made the move from Everton.

Who Arteta has since made vice-captain, admitted that he was 'naughty' during his early days at Arsenal but was kept on the right path by his team-mate and current manager.

'I'd only been at Arsenal for a couple of years, Mikel was one of the captains in the dressing room, he was part of this Spanish speaking group that we had and he really did look after me.

'But not everyone has the responsibility that I had at that time, starting to play for Arsenal first team.

Bellerin also admitted he spent too much time going out and drinking while he was sidelined with the knee injury from January 2019 to the start of last year.

The defender credited one of Arsenal's conditioning coaches for getting him back on the right path before he returned to help the club win the FA Cup at the end of the 2019-2020 campaign.
