Axed Arsenal man gets good review from his loan club

Matteo Guendouzi may yet earn a fresh start to life at a new team after he earned some praise from the sporting director of Hertha Berlin Michael Preetz.

The Frenchman was frozen out of the Arsenal first team since July this year after he fell out with Mikel Arteta.

The Spanish manager seemed to have offered him an olive branch when he said every player in his team had a chance in the new season.

However, he continued to overlook Guendouzi, and there is no guarantee that the midfielder would have played for Arsenal again if he had remained at the club.

He is now at Hertha Berlin for the rest of this season at least. 

His showing for the Germans was initially delayed when he tested positive for coronavirus.

He has now returned and has played two games for them.

While he hasn’t played that many games for them, Preetz claimed that he has “enriched” their team.

‘Three months ago, Matteo’s loan signing wasn’t possible, but it was at the beginning of October,’ Preetz told Kicker as quoted by Metro Sports.

‘We are happy that he is here and that he enriched our game from the start. 

‘We’ll see everything else next summer. 

‘How the prices will develop by then and what Arsenal are planning then, nobody can say today.’

    One of my favourite player. He’s got plenty of energy that I really admire. Only Arteta cannot see that. What a loss to Arsenal

      I can’t see it either

      Top Gunner please tell me one quality that Matteo have, all you keep doing every article is criticize the coach, Matteo can’t pass he can’t really dribble and he definitely cannot score so tell me one quality that he has.

        Lenohappy, I am with you and against Guendouzi but the silly TG did say what he admires, ‘ energy”. On that basis some of the tiny children in my extended family should play for us too, as they all have energy in abundance!

        Pity TG cares nothing for skill , effectiveness, being a team player and all the many things that sensible fans look for. But in TG’s case I have come to expect nonsense, so am never surprised that he does not disappoint us by occasionally writing any sense. He never does write sense!

        Never loses a chance to criticise his hate figure either; our manager. He has a personal vendetta against Arteta and boy does it show!

        Arsenal midfield lacks the energy. Tbey cant pass the ball quicker to make counter attacks. Gouendouzi does challenge opponents unlike Xhaka who’ll back pass the whole game. Ceballos has composure but lacks the energy to knock the ball around much quicker. Ozil also.lacks that energy that Gouendouzi has. This is the main at Arsenal

      TG How strange that on EVERY Arsenal topic I ALWAYS TAKE A COMPELTELY DIFFERENT VIEW FROM YOU. That reassures me I am intelligent !

    A bit of a non starter story really, he has had two full games and done well but to talk of transfer is premature. What we dont need is to sell him the them for 10 mil and then Bayern come in, buy him from them and turn our loanie into a star. Wouldn’t be the first time. Good luck to him, hope he does well and he comes back and turns into the player a lot of good judges think he could be. Lets hope we dont mess it up.

    Another assist for France U21s tonight…👍

    Unfortunately another player which we will lose out on because of our wonderful manager who can not get along with young players. This will come back and bite us in de as* then I will ask all the so called fan pundits here who do not rate MG. There is a reason why he was french U21 captain and was even called up to senior squad. He will probably end up in way bigger club then Arsenal while our fans will jump up n down about seeing players like Willock and Nelson play in there team…typical English don’t accept the quality of foreign player and always over hype it own.

    1. Dan kit says:

      I’ll tell you what mate if he ends up at a big big club and is a first choice starter in the next 5 years ,when I mean big big clubs ,Barca ,Madrid ,PSG , Juve ,I would happily give 100 quid to a charity of your choice ,but I cannot Personally see it .

    Maybe ge can do a turnaround like Mo. They both seem to have similar attributes, even the hair 😂😂

  7. Top Gunner says:

    Ramsey didn’t have any outstanding skill in football, but his success was based on his hard work. So, Gouendouzi always injected the energy in the middle of the park

    1. jon fox says:

      TG Perhaps we should sign the Duracell bunny. He has enough energy to satify you. No football ability obviously, but that doesn’t matter to you! Will the day EVER come when you write some sense!
