Hector Bellerin’s season over :: Club confirm Sven Mislintat departure – Football Article

It’s bad news to start with this morning as it was revealed last night that Hector Bellerin’s injury is a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament which ends his season, and will more than likely see him miss the start of next season too. It’s a huge blow for the 23 year old who, under Unai Emery, had rediscovered some of his best form. He has five Premier League assists to his name, only Aaron Ramsey has more for us this season…

Well, there’s only one place to start this morning, and that’s the comments by Unai Emery which had people up in arms yesterday.

For the sake of clarity, these are his exact words: We cannot sign permanently. We can only loan players. Only loan players. I should also point out that this is something we discuss at some length in…
