Matteo Guendouzi reflects on the problems at Arsenal and his equation with Mesut Ozil

Matteo Guendouzi who would play for Merseille next season, reveals his equation with Mesut Ozil. The French says he is deeply hurt with the situation at Arsenal.


Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is expected to join Marseille on a permanent deal this summer.

The 22-year-old midfielder has failed to live up to the expectations since his move to Emirates, and he fell out with the Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta last season.

The player was on loan at Hertha Berlin last year, and he is keen on sorting out his long term future this summer. There is no doubt that Guendouzi is exceptionally talented, and he has a big future ahead of him.

It will be interesting to see if he can curb his aggression and focus on his football at Marseille next season.

If he manages to fulfil his potential, Arsenal could regret letting him leave this summer.

The player has also opened up on his equation with the former Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil who helped him settle into the club when he arrived. Guendouzi claims that Ozil was like a big brother to him and the German midfielder helped him out with tips and advice from time to time.

The youngster also reflected on the problems at Arsenal and how they hurt him deeply.

It is evident that the midfielder needs a fresh start in his career right now, and a move to Marseille would be ideal for him. A return to his homeland could be another positive for Guendouzi, and it will be interesting to see if he can kick start his career once again.

He said: “I’m under contract with Arsenal, and we have mutual obligations. To see that the club failed to qualify for the European competition for the first time in 25 years hurts deeply. That takes a lot of emotions to me. Arsenal are a big club in Europe that deserve to be in the Champions League every year. That’s normal for me. An institution like this deserves only the best. Arsenal must return to where it belongs.

“I don’t know the reasons for the failure because I wasn’t there last season. But I’m concerned about the club’s situation because Arsenal deserve great things. I am a Gunner from the bottom of my heart and will remain so, no matter what. “

Regarding Ozil, he said: “At Arsenal, he immediately took me under his wing and gave me a lot of tips. That’s why he’s like a big brother to me. Mesut, for example, often said: ‘Keep trust in yourself and your abilities, believe in your strengths, in your game because you have the potential to assert yourself at a top club.’ I have a lot of respect for him as a footballer, but also as a person. He’s a person I admire. Even during my time at Hertha, we were always in contact, often writing to each other or talking on the phone.”
