Here’s your Arsenal morning summary for Monday, May 30.
Real Betis director Antonio Cordon has spoken about Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin’s love for the La Liga side. “Ceballos is desperate to join Betis,” Cordon said.
“But he’s a Real Madrid player, so I can’t say more. Hector Bellerin? He’s in love with Betis. He’s now back at Arsenal and we’ll see what happens, he knows our situation.”
The Spaniard spent the 2021/22 campaign on loan at Betis, with the Gunners signing Japanese right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu as his replacement.
Complaint by Thierry Henry
Arsenal icon Thierry Henry has advised Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah not to talk too much before games after the Reds lost 1-0 in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday. The Egypt international hasn’t made a secret of his desire to ‘get revenge’ on Los Blancos given he was injured in the 2018 final, but he couldn’t take a chance as goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois took advantage of an exceptional game to help his team clinch the trophy. .
“We’ve said it so many times, it’s about putting the ball in the back of the net,” Henry said, via the Liverpool Echo. They (Madrid) have one on target and they score. Liverpool had plenty.
“But they faced Thibaut Courtois. Remember what I said in the semi-finals, people don’t give him the credit he deserves. He’s one of the best goalkeepers in the world and better than Ederson, and he showed it tonight.
“I always say something, don’t speak before a final. Beating Real Madrid and then talking and saying ‘it was revenge and all that’. When you speak before a final, you have to win it.”

Pickford Ramsdale Admission
Everton and England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has claimed Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has helped him improve this season. Speaking to the Daily Mail, Pickford said: “There are always people trying to chase you down and take that place away from you, so it’s about pushing the boundaries.
“I think it’s better for me when Rammers pushes because it pushes me to go even further to become even better. I feel like I was pushed the whole time with Popey [Nick Pope]Deano [Dean Henderson]Rammers, Sam [Johnstone].
“I appreciate the manager’s loyalty. I’ve known him since the Under-21s and I was there when he got the senior job, so yes, he stuck by my side.”
