Hector Bellerin has apologised to the Arsenal fans after the Gunners endured their worst ever defeat at the Emirates courtesy of a second 5-1 humbling at the hands of Bayern Munich.
The 10-2 aggregate loss, the worst ever sustained by the club in Europe, sees Arsene Wenger’s men exit the Champions League at the first knockout stage for the seventh year in a row.
After the game a clearly dejected Bellerin admitted he was sad to see the stadium nearly empty with ten minutes remaining.
“I’m really hurt…seeing the fans leaving the stadium so early,” he told BT Sport.
“At the end of the day we play for them and we want them to be happy and we want them to be behind us. It hurts to see them leave so early.
“We just need to make them happy with the rest of our season. We know we have the capacity and potential to do well, the players, everything.
“We just need to think about every game the same way we started today because when we play that kind of football we can be up there.
“I just want to say sorry to the fans because we need to do better than that.”
