Head coach explains why Arsenal star will be an "important player" during Euro 2016


Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin will be an important player for Spain during the Euro 2016 Championship, head coach Vicente del Bosque has explained.

The youngster has been included in Spain's squad after Real Madrid's Dani Carvajal suffered a thigh injury during the Champions League final win over Atletico Madrid.

Bellerin, 21, was one of the most impressive players for the Gunners this season and is linked with a possible move to Barcelona.

"We had taken the decision among the full-backs we've had recently, including Mario, [Cesar] Azpilicueta, Juanfran and Carvajal," Del Bosque told ESPN.

"Once Carvajal was injured we had the kids with us, and [Bellerin] has been doing very well at Arsenal in recent years.

"We have full confidence in him. Bellerin will be an important player for sure, in the present, and in the future of the Spanish team."
