Alexandre Lacazette full of praise for improving Matteo Guendouzi
Alexandre Lacazette may be busy working on his rehabilitation but he has found time to heap praise on Matteo Guendouzi.
Guendouzi was named the Arsenal September play of the month, an award fully deserved states Lacazette.
It is clear Lacazette has a lot of time for the 20-year-old and has built a close bond with his compatriot.
“He is like the younger brother [in the friendship group with me and Auba]!” Laca told Arsenal.com. “We all really have a good relationship, we like to work and to laugh together so it’s really good.
“I’m really happy for Matteo [for being named September Player of the Month], he played really well, he helped the team when we needed him, he is really improving each season so we are all really happy with his performances this month.
“We can see that every top midfielder in the world is like this [in terms of demanding the ball and being brave]. They all want to take the ball.
“Matteo has a good ambition, he wants to be one of the best players in his position so every day he is trying to be the best and this month he showed that he can be.”
The young midfielder has really improved since he joined Arsenal. He is becoming more effective and cutting down on the headless chicken runs. His passing and vision have improved and he is showing far more creativity.
Guendouzi still has a lot to learn but with teammates like Lacazette mentoring him his future looks bright.
