Laporta welcomes back Bellerin: Barcelona has always been your home

Former Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin is excited to have returned to Barcelona.

The former La Masia junior has returned to Barca having left as a 16 year-old for the Gunners.

Bellerin, at yesterday's presentation, said: "I am very excited. Since I arrived as a child it has always been a dream to reach the first team. I did not expect to return this year but it has been achieved in the most beautiful way.

"I want to thank the president and all the clubs I have passed through and who have made this possible."

Barca president Joan Laporta also said: "Barça has always been your home. You arrived very young, in 2003, when I became president. It's curious that I have the privilege of being here again when you return to Barça. You've gone through many experiences that will have enriched you.

"I want a great soccer talent, the coach asked us. Héctor, in addition to being a great talent, is a committed person and I'm sure he will help us in this aspect. I wish you on a collective and personal level that you continue to fulfill yourself."
