Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi insists his career at the Emirates Stadium is not over.
Guendouzi left Arsenal on the transfer deadline day and joined Germany outfit Hertha Berlin on a season-long loan deal. The Frenchman captained France's U21 side that beat Liechtenstein 5-0 on Thursday. After the win, the midfielder revealed he still has unfinished business with the north London side.
"It is not that, I just really needed to play this year, a new challenge," he told reporters.
"That was the most important thing for me. I am still young, I am only 21, so playing time was the top priority for me. So Hertha Berlin, I know that I will be able to express myself in a magnificent league."
"They are a very good club with big ambitions. So, I have left to go on loan there for a year, so I will give everything I can for this club. I needed playing time, I need to play, I needed to enjoy myself on the pitch and that is what I am going to do this year."
Since the clash with Brighton forward Neal Maupay on June 20th, Guendouzi has not kicked the ball for Mikel Arteta's side.
