Former Watford manager ‘didn’t see Hector Bellerin at full-back’, reveals Troy Deeney

first_img Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin challenges Bayern Munich star Douglas Costa 1 Watford striker Troy Deeney has revealed former Hornets manager Giuseppe Sannino ‘didn’t see’ Arsenal star Hector Bellerin as a full-back during his short spell at the club.The 20-year-old Spaniard has made significant strides since making his Gunners debut last year and is now considered as the club’s first-choice right-back.Bellerin spent a short time on loan at the Hornets in 2014 but was restricted to just eight appearances before he was recalled by Arsene Wenger.The defender soon emerged as one of the club’s brightest talents, with his performance in Tuesday’s surprise Champions League win over Bayern Munich prompting widespread praise from jubilant Arsenal fans.Deeney was also impressed with his showing – which at one point saw Bellerin outsprint Brazilian speedster Douglas Costa on the wing – with the striker hailing the development of his former team-mate at the Emirates.“He’s a good kid and it didn’t really work out too well for him here,” said Deeney.“That shows you about football, doesn’t it? Your career is defined by the opinions of individuals about your game.“[Former Watford manager] Giuseppe [Sannino] didn’t really see him at full-back but I’m sure he was playing Champions League football later that season.“Hector’s keeping Debuchy out of the side, so he must be doing plenty right.”last_img
