Hertha Berlin manager Pal Dardai has made some strange comments about Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi.
The young Frenchman went through a difficult time at the Emirates Stadium before going on loan to the Bundesliga this season.
Guendouzi is clearly talented, but appeared to lose favor with Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta due to attitude and mentality issues.
Dardai’s comments on Guendouzi’s development certainly suggest that the 21-year-old might not be the easiest player to work with.
The Hungarian strategist described Guendouzi as a rebel and an animal, and one has to wonder if these descriptions bode well for him in the long run.
“It’s like puberty for him, he’s kind of a maverick. He has to work and learn like an animal,” said Dardai. Photography.

Arsenal would surely love to see Guendouzi put his problems behind him and develop his true potential, but it is not clear that it will be that easy.
It will be worth seeing how the youngster continues to progress through Germany this season.
