Speaking in an extensive, exclusive interview with France Football, France U21s captain and Hertha Berlin and Arsenal central midfielder Mattéo Guendouzi discussed his relationship with manager Mikel Arteta.
Is the story between Arsenal and Mattéo Guendouzi over?
No, not at all. Now, I am focused on my season with Hertha Berlin. Next, we will have a sit down with my entourage and people at the club to think and discuss the future. I am still an Arsenal player. This summer will be a decisive moment.
Could you come back to Arsenal with Mikel Arteta as manager?
Yes, of course. I belong to Arsenal for another year (until June 2022).
Your relationship with Mikel Arteta has caused quite a stir. Is your desire truly to resurrect a relationship between the two of you?
I am here to improve. From the moment that I am playing for Arsenal, I will give everything for this club, for the fans, for the team, for the staff. I will work hard for the shirt as I have always done.
