Arsenal midfielder Hector Bellerin has broken silence following his horrific knee injury sustained during Saturday’s 2-0 win over Chelsea.
Bellerin collapsed in agony and appeared to be in tears as he was stretchered off with a knee problem.
The Spaniard will certainly miss the rest of the season after rupturing his ACL and could be sidelined for up to nine months.
The Arsenal midfielder has had thousands of get well soon messages from fans pouring in over the last two days.
Speaking out for the first time, Bellerin tweeted: ‘There are no obstacles in life you can’t get over.’
‘Been a difficult couple of days but I’m positive and ready to take whatever challenge comes my way.

Teammate Rob Holding who is out of action for several months also sent his own best wishes: ‘We got this brother’.
Unai Emery does have options to replace Bellerin in Stephan Lichtsteiner, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Carl Jenkinson – who was expected to be allowed to leave the Emirates Stadium this month before Bellerin’s setback.
