Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has no plans to follow Gerard Pique or Cesc Fabregas and return to Barcelona, and insists his recent run in the first team has justified the decision to swap the Nou Camp for north London.
The 20-year-old made his top-flight debut against Hull City earlier in the campaign, the first of 13 Premier League appearances this term, the latest of which saw the Spaniard net his first Gunners goal in the 4-1 win over Liverpool.
Bellerin joined Arsenal in 2011 after coming through the much-famed La Masia academy at Barcelona but unlike many former players to depart the Catalan giants in their formative years, the youngster has no plans to return.
"I am good at Arsenal, but you do not know what the future may hold," he told the @RoadtoEuro2016 podcast. "The Arsenal is giving me everything I am with amazing players. Do not think about the future. I just started. I thank the people who speak well of me, but I'm only in the beginning. What has to arrive, will arrive."
Recent examples include Pique, who after joining Manchester United returned to Barca where he became one of the formidable defenders in Europe, while Fabregas left Arsenal in 2011 after eight-year-long first spell in English football.
Having ruled out repeating those moves, Bellerin – who is expected to sign a new contract before the end of the current campaign – has described how he left Barcelona for the good of his career.
He said: "It was difficult because I left my family, my friends, but my dream has always been to be a footballer, not play at Barca. My dream is to be a footballer, playing, winning titles, reaching the selection and go to Arsenal saw that it was best for me.
"Sometimes the train passes and you take it or not. Many people called me crazy when I left, but I'm showing that I was right. Life does not end at Barca. Wenger I have to thank. He has been the coach has given me a great opportunity. And with age that I have know it's hard. I appreciate it. I try to pay him playing well."
