‘This better not be true’: Some Arsenal fans react to report on 20-year-old

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the claims that Matteo Guendouzi is fighting for his future with the Gunners, as reported by The Telegraph and The Mirror.

The report claims that Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta dropped Guendouzi from the squad against Newcastle as a “clear warning” to the young midfielder.

Arteta was reportedly unhappy with Guendouzi’s attitude during the Gunners’ winter break in Dubai and decided to show who’s boss, the omission said to be “the talk of the dressing room”.

The report in the outlets appears somewhat at odds with the Football London report from a week ago claiming Arsenal were ready to open contract talks with the 20-year-old.

Nonetheless, with Arteta seemingly taking a strong stance against any player who’s not showing the right “levels and performances” in training, it appears to be worrying news for Guendouzi.

Here is what some Arsenal fans have been saying on social media:


Guendouzi was a somewhat unknown addition when he arrived at Arsenal in the summer of 2018 from French club Lorient for a reported £7million plus bonuses (

However, Guendouzi quickly worked his way into Gunners first-team contention, and has made 77 senior appearances to date, including 29 in all competitions this season (Transfermarkt).

The Frenchman also won the club’s Player of the Month award in September, receiving 48 percent of the votes cast.
