Matteo Guendouzi appears to send message to Arsenal and Mikel Arteta with celebration after wonder goal for Hertha Berlin December 12, 2020 – Posted in: Soccer
Matteo Guendouzi showed Arsenal what they are missing with a wonder goal against Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday night.
The Gunners midfielder scored his first goal for Hertha Berlin in the 1-1 draw against the Champions League side.
But it was his celebration that appeared to send a message to Arsenal and manager Mikel Arteta.
Guendouzi put his hands in the air, which resembled the ‘shrug’ emoji as if to say, ‘why did you let me go?’
The Frenchman has not played for Arsenal since clashing with Brighton’s Neal Maupay in a 2-1 defeat to the Seagulls in June.
Guendouzi is alleged to have boasted about his wages and has not been seen in a Gunners shirt since.
Subsequently, he was loaned out to Hertha Berlin in October and has made five league appearances for the club.
Without him, Arsenal are languishing in 15th place, winning just four of their first 11 Premier League games.
Last month, 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.”
