Pires hails Arsenal star Guendouzi

Pires hails Arsenal star Guendouzi Arsenal legend Robert Pires has heaped praise on Matteo Guendouzi following the youngster’s start to life at the Emirates Stadium. The promising midfielder was recruited by the club during the summer transfer window and arrived as something of an unknown quantity. After impressing in the second tier of French football with Loreint, Guendouzi attracted interest from plenty of prestigious clubs across Europe, including Paris Saint-Germain. However, Arsenal secured his services in a £7 million deal and have since seen the player establish himself in the first-team squad of Unai Emery this season. Pires spoke to i News about how Guendouzi has developed in North London since his move from Ligue 2 and was full of compliments for the 19-year-old. He said: “Matteo, I know him a little bit because he used to play for Lorient in France. Of course, for Arsenal fans, for journalists and for some people he has been a great surprise because nobody knew him when he signed for Arsenal.” “But he’s a great player, he’s very talented and he’s very confident. For me, no, it was not a surprise for me. I repeat because I know him. He plays simple, he runs a lot, he’s like a warrior.” “I think he’s like Lucas Torreira. For Arsenal, it’s very important to have a player like Matteo Guendouzi. He’s a good player and I think he can make a success with Arsenal. I hope so.” The midfielder will be hoping to continue developing in his maiden campaign in English football, with the festive period of fixtures certain to present him with chances to impress.

As reported by the Mirror, the Arsenal summer signing sent a dig towards the Belgian after he pulled his hair in a bid to catch up with the player.

Fellaini has recently stolen the headlines by his eye-catching decision to swap his infamous afro hairstyle for a short back and sides.

Guendouzi could not help but poke fun at the Belgian midfielder when quizzed on the incident after the game.

“I think there is a bit of jealousy there. Maybe he can’t accept the fact that he chose to go back to short hair!”

Guendouzi, who has been a popular figure since his arrival, instantly drew comparisons to the United midfielder after joining the club due to his own hairstyle.

Following Arsenal’s win over Tottenham in the North London derby, Guendouzi was pictured celebrating with fans on the streets after leaving the Emirates as he continues to endear himself to supporters.
