Arsenal fans have turned on Matteo Guendouzi

Unai Emery has proven himself to be a decisive manager, with the Spaniard not afraid to make bold decisions for the better of the team. He picks who he thinks is best for the job, regardless of their reputation, and that’s one of the reasons why Mesut Ozil has struggled for minutes this season. 

It’s also a reason why Matteo Guendouzi, despite only moving to the Emirates in the summer whilst still a teenager, has enjoyed so much time on the field this season.

The manager has looked past his age and his flaws and seen that he can offer something different to this team, and more often than not, that decision has been vindicated. The Frenchman has got a fantastic range of passing and he’s a hard-working midfielder, and he’s been fundamental to much of Arsenal’s success this term.

However, Guendouzi featured in Arsenal’s loss to Rennes on Thursday evening, and at least according to some fans of the Gunners, he did not impress. He only came on in the second half, but he evidently didn’t make a good impression.

Following the game at the Emirates, lots of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to slam Guendouzi for his performance, with his poor tracking back proving to be a particular point of contention amongst fans.

See what they’ve had to say below:
