The one-time Liverpool hero has praised Spanish international defender Hector Bellerin for his recent Arsenal performances.
The 21-year-old defender performances this season have been nothing short of brilliant and he has established himself as first choice right back in Arsene Wenger’s squad.
In my opinion, he is the best right-back in the Premier League present, and has recently signed a new deal to remain at The Emirates, despite rumoured interest from both Man City, and Barcelona.
His recent performances provoked Owen to admit that he is a big fan of Bellerin, and he admires his pace going forward as well, he said as quoted by BT Sport via Thesportreview:
“His choice of pass is absolutely brilliant. It’s far easier as a full-back to take a touch and perfect it, but your centre-forwards need it quickly and he has the confidence to go for it. You’ve got to take a risk in the attacking third and he does that well…”
It expected that Bellerin will continue at right back for the match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium this weekend following his injury lay off.
