Guendouzi names the best player he has played with and the best coach

Matteo Guendouzi has named Mesut Ozil as the best player he has played with and Unai Emery as the best manager he has worked with.

The hot-headed Frenchman joined the Gunners from Lorient in 2018 as one of the most talented teenage French stars.

He broke into the Arsenal first team under Emery and remained there until the Spaniard was fired and replaced with his compatriot, Mikel Arteta.

Arteta didn’t fancy him so much but kept him as a part of his first-team plans.

However, Guendouzi’s hot head got in the way of his job and he fell out with his manager on at least two occasions.

The last came in July last year when he reportedly taunted the players of Brighton about how much he earns more than them.

He was then shipped out on loan to Hertha Berlin at the start of this season, where he seems to be thriving.

He was speaking to Oh My Goal recently and answered some questions like the best manager he has had and the best player he has played with.

He claimed that Emery was the best manager he has had, and Ozil was the best he has played with.

Asked who the best player he has ever played with, the former Lorient star said: “Mesut Ozil. Technically, whether he’s on the pitch during a match or on the training ground he has a technical ease.

“He reads the game better than everyone else. He’s a player I’ve loved playing with.”

  1. Thats a hit targeting arteta lol… Guess we won’t see Guendozi in arsenal shirt again while arteta is at the helm

  2. He also said Tottenham is the best club in London, Tottenham stadium is better than the Emirates and Spurs fans are the best in the world. Oh and he finished by saying he would only come back to Arsenal if he was made captain and was paid 600k p/w. 😄

    1. Wyoming, glad someone still has a sense of humour at the moment!
      West Ham fans will be livid with Guendouzi; Tottenham the best club in London! 😊

  3. Arteta is a poor manager… honest. Just the honest truth. He just hasn’t the ability to manage our great club. He’s lost.

  4. I don’t know how well or badly Guendouzi is playing in Germany, but I don’t think his performances in an Arsenal shirt were any worse than what Partey or Xhaka have us yesterday.

  5. I just watched the interview

    For all of you who are saying he is ruining his chances of playing for Arsenal again are abit off the mark.

    Why wouldnt MG say UE was the best manager he has played under?

    Isn’t UE the manager who gave him his shot at a big club?
    Isn’t UE the one who regularly played him?

    Why would he say any different?

    If he plays for us again or not, it wont be based on this

    1. Val,your comments here is the most sensitive and objective of all i have read here so far. Many here allowed negative sentiments to becloud their sense of objective reasoning.

  6. His comments are quite logical though. In his short career the no. of players and coaches he has associated with, these two are the best.

  7. He is well within his right to Freedom of speech to voice his opinions and views. And it is correctly so. It is UE who gave him the lifeline to unleash his career on the big stage. He also exercised
    to the maximum his freedom association as evidenced by his friendship with Mesut Ozil whom had been an inspiration to him and they had a great understanding of each other during their time in London.
    I see no digs to anyone.
    Though its pretty clear that the hatchet is not yet burried between him and MA which is very okay.(One does not have to agree with everyone) otherwise i hope he continues enjoying his football in Germany as he clearly doesn’t fancy chances of restoring his career at AFC.
