Matteo Guendouzi ‘has been banned from Arsenal’s first team training since the defeat of Brighton with Mikel Arteta furious with the midfielder’s stance, while Gunners plans to sell a stubborn Frenchman this summer’
- Matteo Guendouzi’s days at Arsenal may be over due to an argument with his boss
- Mikel Arteta has sent the Frenchman to train alone with a fitness coach
- The midfielder escaped a ban on stealing Neal Maupay after a defeat in Brighton
- However, the Gunners were unimpressed amid a series of problems
- North Londoners now reportedly want to sell Guendouzi this summer
Mikel Arteta promised relentlessness when he joined Arsenal and Matteo Guendouzi was treated to nothing less as he was forced to train alone while the Gunners wanted to sell the midfielder.
The 21-year-old has built a reputation as a hot-head after a number of incidents, the most recent hold of the match by Brighton winner Neal Maupay after the Gunners’ sad 2-1 defeat to the south coast in June.
Guendouzi miraculously avoided a ban on the FA, but did not escape Arteta’s wrath, with the Spaniard less than impressed with his attitude – dropping the midfielder before every game.
Matteo Guendouzi with a future at Arsenal looks unlikely after recent developments
Mikel Arteta continued to rule with an iron fist, which prevented the Frenchman from training
Arteta is unimpressed with Guendouzi’s demeanor and dropped the midfielder
The athletic reports that Guendouzi has been banned from first team training since the defeat of Seagulls, working alone with a fitness coach after failing to impress in a meeting with Arteta and technical director Edu.
The report claims that the Frenchman and his representatives will meet Arsenal in the coming days as the Emirates side is keen to put him out of the way through a sale or exchange agreement.
Arteta has been unperturbed in his direct approach to breaking Arsenal’s steady decline, and seems to have changed their post-lockdown form since dropping Guendouzi.
Guendouzi’s throat grab at Neal Maupay after a defeat to Brighton left Arteta furious
Since Guendouzi was dropped, Arsenal has kicked in by scoring four wins in a row
The club’s highest paid player, Mesut Ozil, has also sat when the Gunners stormed to four consecutive wins after the loss at Brighton, which allowed only one time and scored 10 goals.
Things are looking good for the Gunners, with 18-year-old hot prospect Bukayo Saka connecting his future to the club through a new four-year contract – celebrated with a great strike in the 2-0 win over Wolves on Saturday .
Saka will undoubtedly influence Arsenal’s confrontation with Leicester on Tuesday, where a win would represent huge advances for Arteta.
