The young French midfielder who is spending a year on loan at Bundesliga made a costly mistake against Leipzig.

Matteo Guendouzi



from the French Ligue 2 back in 2018 when Unai Emery was in charge. He was quickly introduced to the first team which was criticized by some of the fans. From the beginning, it was obvious that the young French midfielder doesn’t have the best attitude but it was until post-lockdown, last season that Mikel Arteta decided to exile the player.

He joined

Hertha Berlin

with a season-long loan-deal this summer. Pal Dardai, Hertha’s manager says that the player still has some work to do on his maturity and says that he is in his puberty.

The Hertha head coach told 


 of Guendouzi's ongoing development: "It's like puberty for him, he's kind of a rebel. He has to work and learn like an animal."

In Sunday's 3-0 defeat by

RB Leipzig

, Guendouzi was introduced as a 68th-minute substitute and, three minutes later, lost the ball inside his own box, leading to Leipzig's second goal.

Regarding this situation, Dardai said: "In training, I always stop these kind of duels because you can't fall to the ground like this. And, afterwards, he's mad."
