Watch: Arsenal’s Matteo Guendouzi scores stunning goal for Hertha Berlin
Matteo Guendouzi showed Arsenal what they are missing with a sensational goal in Hertha Berlin’s 1-1 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach.
Despite being the all-round b*stard the club has been crying out for, Guendouzi fell out of favour under Mikel Arteta due to disciplinary issues.
The midfielder then decided to leave Arsenal in search of regular first-team football and joined Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin on a season-long loan deal.
“I just really needed to play this year, a new challenge,” Guendouzi said in October 2020. “That was the most important thing for me. I am still young, I am only 21, so playing time was the top priority for me.
“So Hertha Berlin, I know that I will be able to express myself in a magnificent league. They are a very good club with big ambitions. So, I have left to go on loan there for a year, so I will give everything I can for this club.
“I needed playing time, I need to play, I needed to enjoy myself on the pitch and that is what I am going to do this year.”
He has rediscovered his best form in recent weeks and opened his Bundesliga account against Monchengladbach, curling the ball home from the edge of the penalty area.
