Arsenal's Hector Bellerin: Football is more important than fashion

Arsenal's Hector Bellerin: Football is more important than fashion
From ESPN - February 7, 2018

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin insists his love for fashion does not take his focus away from football, as the Spain international became the first active Premier League player to address the Oxford Union.

Bellerin has made a habit of posting photos of himself wearing various designer outfits on social media and made a much-publicised visit to London Fashion Week last month.

Aside from the mixed reviews his choice of clothing often gets, some fans have also worried whether the right-back is spending too much time on his hobby instead of working on his game. But during his appearance at the Oxford Union, Bellerin insisted that is not the case.

"So many people tweet me saying focus on the game, having seen me at fashion shows or whatever, and I am just like 'do not worry,'" Bellerin said during the event. "I am a human being. I have passions, I have hobbies but equally, I am a footballer and that is my main focus."

Mesut Ozil is also addressing the Oxford Union later this month, with the two Arsenal players joining a list of past speakers that include prime ministers, Nobel laureates, business executives and famous actors.
