​Arsenal youngster Guendouzi: I can progress under amazing Emery

Arsenal youngster Matteo Guendouzi says that he has faith in his future at Arsenal.

Guendouzi, 19, was signed from Ligue 2 side Lorient in the summer and has been impressive in his displays in the Premier League.

And the young defensive midfielder believes Unai Emery is the right man to develop his game.

"He's shown plenty of confidence in me since I arrived here," Guendouzi said during an interview with former Gunners striker Jeremie Aliadiere.

"Not any coach would through a 19-year-old youngster into Premier League action, particularly at a club like Arsenal.

"I'm very grateful to him for that. He's making me work hard and has already helped me improve considerably since I arrived.

"I could feel that even in the first few training sessions over my first few weeks and months.

"He's a very good coach. That goes for his staff as well and they all work well together.

"We have everything in place to progress both individually and collectively.

"I'm very please to have Unai Emery as my coach. I'm convinced I'll be able to make progress under him by working hard, which is the most important thing for me.

"We mustn't forget that I'm still a young player and I still have plenty of hard work to do.

"I think I can make big progress under a coach like him. He's a very good coach with very good staff."
