Arsenal loanee Matteo Guendouzi hits rocks at Hertha Berlin after being seen arguing with team-mates in relegation scrap

MATTEO GUENDOUZI argued with a Hertha Berlin team-mate in his latest career lowlight.

The Arsenal midfielder, 21, was shipped out on loan to Germany for this season.

That transfer, sealed on deadline day, came about following a series of fallouts with Mikel Arteta and the Gunners.

And it appears he is still struggling to control his emotions following a bust-up this week.

Guendouzi and Hertha forward Matheus Cunha reportedly got into a heated clash on their way out for the second half during the 3-0 defeat to Hoffenheim.

The ex-Lorient man has not featured for Arsenal since the fateful defeat away at Brighton on June 20.

He scrapped with compatriot Neal Maupay on the pitch and bragged to the Seagulls players over his £40,000-a-week wages.

Before that, Guendouzi was in hot water with Arteta during a mid-season training camp in Dubai where he reportedly got into incidents with club staff, Sokratis and Edu.

To make matters worse for him in Germany, Hertha Berlin have now lost three of their last four, picking up one draw and scoring just once.

And Saturday's 4-1 home defeat to Werder Bremen left them two points outside the Bundesliga relegation zone – leading to the sacking of manager Bruno Labbadia and sporting director Michael Preetz.


That will come as a blow for Guendouzi, who recovered from Covid-19 at the beginning of the season to become an integral member of the team under Labbadia.

The Frenchman has played the full the 90 minutes in Hertha Berlin's last 12 matches after breaking into the side.
