Arsenal star Hector Bellerin has vowed to return stronger after the club announced that he’s suffered a ruptured cruciate knee ligament injury which will rule him out for six to nine months.

Bellerin went down unchallenged in our 2-0 win over Chelsea last weekend and the anguish present on his face made many fear the worse.

Replays of the incident only heightened our fears, with the anterior ligament in Bellerin’s left knee clearly under stress as he fell awkwardly.

The Spaniard only just returned to the fold after being out for being out for four weeks with a calf strain picked up at Southampton last month.

The 23-year-old has been in sensational form this term, with the managerial change last summer seemingly doing him the world of good.

“There are no obstacles in life you can’t get over,” he said on his personal Twitter account.

“Been a difficult couple of days but I’m positive and ready to take whatever challenge comes my way. Thank you so much for the love and messages, you are incredible.”

Bellerin exploded onto the scene in 2014 with some impressive performances, though his career trajectory descended over the past few years.

He came under severe criticism during Arsene Wenger’s final few years and it seems the change of coaching staff has transformed him.

While a signing to cover his absence doesn’t seem likely, we will miss him dearly.
