Matteo Guendouzi has for a while had disagreements with his boss Mikel Arteta. Their recent fight was after their game against Brighton where they suffered a defeat.
Due to the disagreements, Arteta has since failed to include Guendouzi in the first-team training, directing him to train alone with his fitness coach.
In Arsenal’s game against Brighton, Guendouzi clashed with Neal Maupay, grabbing him by the throat. However, Guendouzi escaped punishment after FA in a statement said that the officials did not witness the clash.
In February 2020, Guendouzi was reprimanded by Arsenal’s technical director Edu, for allegedly removing his shirt and waving it in support of a local music artist in Dubai. He was left out in several games but was later recalled after the club felt he responded well to the punishment.
His relationship with Arteta has worsened to the extent the manager is now looking for potential swap deals for the young star. Guendouzi still has two years left on his contract with Arsenal. If the club wants to recoup a maximum value on him, they will have to offload him this coming summer.
The Frenchman is still young, with outstanding qualities in the midfield but Arsenal manager has had enough of him and expects everyone to respect his decision.
Guendouzi’s prideful and ambitious attitude will cost him in his football career. Before he joined Arsenal, he was kicked out of Lorient due to the same reasons.
