Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi scored a wonder goal for Hertha Berlin and celebrated the goal with hands in the air. The celebration appeared to send a message to his parent club Arsenal and manager Mikel Arteta. The stunner was against Gladbach, who is doing a good job in the Champions League.
The Borussia club has managed to qualify to the next stage of the Champions League alongside Real Madrid. While Arsenal are struggling with their worst start in Premier League. The Londoners are in the 15th position in the league table. However, Arteta is planning to have a top-five finish.
The club from North London is struggling to hit the ground running after a poor start to their league campaign. Mikel Arteta is building a squad for the future by removing players, who are not in his plans. Some of them are already rumored to leave by January.
Likes of William Saliba and Granit Xhaka are not in the future plans of the Spanish manager. While Saliba hasn’t even got a first-team debut after returning from his season-long loan deal with Saint-Etienne. The French defender is currently with the Arsenal U-21 side.
Matteo Guendouzi was one such player in the Arsenal set-up under Arteta. The Spaniard was not a big fan of the French midfielder’s attitude. Arteta also expressed his opinion that Guendouzi wasn’t in his future plans.
Arsenal midfielder got into trouble in the game against Brighton and Hove Albion. Guendouzi went straight into the action with Neal Maupay after the full-time whistle, which created a skirmish between the teams.
Guendouzi’s wonder goal against Gladbach
Matteo Guendouzi got the throat of Neal Maupay after the end of the full ninety minutes. As per reports, Guendouzi has taunted the Brighton players over their wages compared to his and other Arsenal stars. This was not appreciated by Arteta as well.
The lad was even training alone during the rest of the Premier League games, since then. The Frenchmen was loaned-out to German club Hertha BSC in October. The midfielder has made five appearances for his new club to date. Matteo scored his first goal in fashion for Hertha BSC.
Hertha Berlin faced Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga clash. The French midfielder proved his worth by scoring a wonder goal from distance. However, his side couldn’t get all three points against Gladbach.
However, Guendouzi’s celebration stole everyone’s attention than his goal. The celebration was like a message to his manager Arteta and Arsenal. Guendouzi put his hands in the air, which resembled the ‘shrug’ emoji as if to say, ‘why did you let me go?’
Reason behind Guendouzi move to Germany
Guendouzi revealed he moved to Germany to have ‘fun’ on the pitch again. He said: “I needed to have fun on the pitch, to regain confidence and that’s what Hertha offers me. It really is a choice I made. In the space of two seasons I have played more than 80 games with Arsenal. When you play less, you start to think and it hurts.”
Matteo has featured in six games for the Bundesliga side to date. He has managed to find the net once and an assist as well in his new journey. The 21-year-old midfielder is a good talent and needs to work on his aggression and discipline on the pitch.
