Matteo Guendouzi: “There are a lot of French guys at Arsenal – it played a big role.”

Speaking to Canal Football Club this evening, Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi discussed Unai Emery as a primary reason for him joining the club and why he turned down PSG in favour of the London outfit.

“He was definitely a reason why I went. It was him who really wanted me to come to Arsenal. He is a very good manager, we have done very good results since the beginning of the season with him. He doesn’t come across as feeling under particular pressure, he is just doing what he loves to do. He has transmitted that to us on the pitch and that is why we are getting the results we are getting.”

“It is true that PSG were very interested, like other teams, there were a lot of discussions, but for me the best decision I could make was to join Arsenal. Once they positioned themselves, I didn’t hesitate, I orientated myself in that direction. I think when I was young I watched a lot of Arsenal, but the fact that there are a lot of French guys there played a big role.”
