Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell doesn’t expect Matteo Guendouzi to ever play for the club again.
Campbell, who scored 46 league goals in 226 appearances for the club, believes Mikel Arteta has made up his mind and stamped his authority on the 21-year-old midfielder, who was allowed to join the German side Hertha on loan during the summer transfer window.
“I do not think he will play for Arsenal again,” former Gunners striker Campbell told Football Insider of Guendouzi.
“He doesn't have a future at Arsenal. Mikel Arteta put him in detention after the Brighton game last season, that is what it was – detention.
“A manager like Arteta wants to see that you can toe the line, take your punishment, keep your trap shut and get working. Guendouzi could not do it.
“He was given a clean slate at the start of the season, like Mesut Ozil, but they did not toe the line.
“Arteta is strong enough to exclude players he cannot trust. When a manager cannot trust you, he is not going to back you.
“The good thing is they got him out on loan because you cannot afford to have ill-disciplined players like that in and around the club. The right thing was to get him out on loan.”
