Arsenal’s Matteo Guendouzi expected to captain France’s under-21s at Euros

Arsenal’s Matteo Guendouzi expected to captain France’s under-21s at Euros

Guendouzi’s Arsenal & Hertha stints

Matteo Guendouzi has had a rather interesting couple of years, since joining Arsenal from the French second-tier back in 2018.

Despite his age and limited experience at the top level, the Frenchman showcased clear signs of promise early in his Gunners career.

However, the now 21-year-old’s form proved somewhat erratic, with Guendouzi having even been compared to a headless chicken due to his non-stop style.

Nevertheless, when Mikel Arteta first took the reins at Arsenal, the youngster was afforded plenty of game-time.

This was only until he was accused of taunting several Brighton stars over finances during a meeting back in June, however. In turn, Guendouzi was not afforded a single appearance over the closing months of last season.

The midfielder has of course since been loaned to German outfit Hertha Berlin for the 2020/21 campaign.

And Guendouzi has endured a rather mixed season to date, with Hertha, after a decent start, having been dragged into a relegation battle. The Arsenal man’s playing time, meanwhile, has taken a hit in the process.

Guendouzi to captain France’s under-21s?

Despite his struggles with Arsenal, and now Hertha, though, the midfielder does appear to be very much in favour internationally.

France under-21 boss Sylvain Ripoll announced his squad for this summer’s under-21 European Championships on Monday.

And Guendouzi was included in the squad, alongside some top stars, such as Houssem Aouar and Eduardo Camavinga:

It is Arsenal’s on-loan youngster, though, who is reportedly set to captain Les Bleus’ under-21 side at the tournament:
