A HAMpy birthday: Alvaro Arbeloa turns 34

The Spanish fullback has truly had a memorable career

After wishing Cheikhou Kouyate a Happy Birthday last month, we continue our Happy Birthday wishes to current West Ham players with a January 17 happy birthday to Alvaro Arbeloa.

Few players in Hammers history have been more decorated that the veteran Spanish fullback. Despite his free transfer signing this season being more of a mentorship for young Sam Byram, no one can’t deny that Arbeloa has been apart of many memorable sides throughout his career. The newly made 34-year-old has been a World Cup champion, a two-time European Champion, a two-time European club champion, a Spanish league champion and multiple winner of other trophies.

Getting a year older officially has not dampened the spirits of Arbeloa at all. In fact, he has made sure to express his gratitude to the various birthday wishes he’s received by retweeting them on his Twitter page.

And he started his birthday off by posting how his wonderful family celebrated another year with him.

Once again, we at Brace The Hammer wish a Happy Birthday to Alvaro Arbeloa!
