Arsenal Defender Linked With Move Away From The Club

CBS Sports is reporting that Arsenal Defender Hector Bellerin is not interested in penning a new contract at the club and wants a move away. The right-back has reportedly made his intentions clear to the Arsenal board that he is willing to depart the Emirates Stadium once the 2020-21 season comes to an end and the summer transfer window opens for business.

Bellerin has done well to impress at Arsenal since starting his career from the club’s youth setup and has played in as many as 231 games for the Gunners. Although he has had to battle with several niggling injuries in the past few years, he has always done well to show his quality when he returns from those injuries.

This current season, the defender has played a total of 27 matches across all competitions for the Gunners but has not been that consistent and has also divided fans’ opinions already. And that’s probably why he is now being linked with a move away from the club; to finally break free from the criticism that surrounds him, according to a source from his camp.

GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL BADLY HIT BY PANDEMIC

 

Grassroots football in the United Kingdom has been badly hit by the Corona Virus pandemic. The crisis at that level is multifaceted, from funding to visibility and structure. Now with the pandemic draining finance in the short and possibly medium term, tens of thousands will suffer.

The Premier League could resume mid or late June but for the rest at the grassroots it could be August or later before any football activity would be permitted. Likely for the rest of the year, fans would not be allowed to see games. Coaching games at this level might not be permitted for the rest of the year as well. Coaching sessions, tours, tournaments, fundraisers and charity events, shows and concerts might not resume for the rest of the year, possibly impacting early next year as well.

It can be clearly understood that Manchester United has intentions to complete the campaign currently going instead of canceling it. But some measures are being taken to ensure their fans that they are not left out by them if the games are not played.
