On loan Arsenal player Matteo Guendouzi has revealed why he left the Emirates, for German side Hertha Berlin this summer, believing he still has a future at the club.
The young French midfielder hasn’t played for Mikel Arteta‘s side, following his involvement with Brighton’s Neal Maupay last season, in the 2-1 defeat.
There is a believe that the 21-year old and Arteta fell out as a result of his conduct at the Amex.
Guendouzi, who is currently on international duty with France U21s, however rejected claims that his relationship with Arteta was beyond repair.
When asked if a future at Arsenal was impossible, he replied:
“It is not that, I just really needed to play this year, a new challenge.
“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.
“I know that by going to Hertha Berlin, I’ll be able to really express myself in a great league, so everything is perfect.
“They’re a very good German club, with great ambition, so I’ve gone on loan for a year over there.
“I’m going to give everything for this club. I needed game time, to enjoy myself on the pitch and that’s what I’m going to do this year.”
