Arsenal boss Emery: Best option for Guendouzi is to cut his hair!

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has laughed off Matteo Guendouzi's clash with Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini on Wednesday.

Fellaini yanked on Guendouzi's hair to stop him late in the 2-2 draw.

“I think the best thing for the next match is for Matteo to cut his hair, and this problem is finished!" Emery joked at Thursday's press conference. “Like Fellaini did!" he added, referring to the Belgian's recent trim.

“When I was a player it was the same," Emery went on. “Today, with the cameras, all the situations happening in the 90 minutes can be seen. Some questions are, for me, between the players on the pitch. If it's not a good action they can receive a card. On the pitch, the situation happened and it's between the players."

So has Emery told Guendouzi about his idea?

“No, I respect the players' hair a lot!" he replied.
