The Spanish full-back has taken the armband occasionally for the Gunners and is among the deputies to present skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Hector Bellerin forms a part of the leadership team at Arsenal and considers he is captain material despite not being a”massive man who cries on the pitch”.

The Spanish full-back is a significant personality from the Gunners squad, but he’s not cut from precisely the same fabric as Tony Adams and Patrick Vieira.

That makes him less of inspiration from those around him, with his possessions having been recognised by his contemporaries in north London.

Bellerin secured votes in the notorious poll held by Unai Emery that saw the armband handed to Granit Xhaka early in 2019-20 before the Swiss has been forced to surrender duties to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The duty of being skipper was passed in Bellerin’s leadership occasionally during his spell in England and he claims to adopt that pressure, while also saluting the expertise and caliber he has around him at Emirates Stadium.

The 25-year-old has told Arsenal’s official site: “Since I was young at Barcelona, I’d always be one of the three captains from the group. For me, it was a role I am used to.

“Obviously it is not the same when you are 14 or 15 as it’s now because the obligation and what you represent is entirely different, but it has always been something I’ve enjoyed. I enjoy places of responsibility and I love being the first one on this wall.

“For me personally, I was talking to the coach for a month or two and he was telling me that I could be among the folks who could represent the group. I was really satisfied with it because I am somebody who’s been here for quite a long time and I understand how the club runs.

“People may not see me as this enormous man who cries about the pitch all the time or what people may have as a captain in their minds, but there are a lot of distinct methods of directing a team.

“Everyone in the group respects each other and we have so many leaders that do not have to wear the armband to have an effect on how others think.

“After going through so many distinct captains and personalities from my time here so far, you always find the best items from all of these. The time that I’ve been here has been very helpful for that and if I had been captain or not, I have always been somebody who is liked to help and speak from the group’s perspective.

“I’m not scared of these things so, for me, it is something I am very pleased with. I am very honoured to be a part of the group and it is something that this team needs.

“I am very happy I was approached and then for the votes I received in the dressing room. That shows my team-mates trust me to do this job, and I am pleased to do it when I must.

“In the group we have, we’ve got so many diverse qualities where each individual can give what they have to the group.

“I think it’s really important to have a solid captain but there are also people out of our leadership team like Papa [Sokratis], such as David Luiz, who has gone through a lot and has so much expertise. When they raise their voice, they are listening to as much as the leadership team is.

“That is more important than anything else. Sometimes it’s not only about getting that one figure, but it is also about everybody in the dressing room respecting each other, listening to each other and moving forward in exactly the same direction. That is what we’ve got here at Arsenal.”
