​Arsenal fullback Bellerin on Spain call-up: It's been a tough few years

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin admits he has endured a difficult four years away from the Spanish national team.

Bellerin was a regular with Spain earlier in his career, but a series of injuries have meant he has been on the outs for several seasons.

Now he is back with his national teammates, and could not be happier.

"Yes, I am so happy getting back home. It has been almost five years since the last time, so I am very happy," Bellerin said in an interview with the Royal Spanish Football Federation.

"They have been tough years, and they always are when you cannot join the national team, but I am very proud and happy now.

"I can't wait to start."
