Campbell: Guendouzi won't play for Arsenal again

Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes Matteo Guendouzi has played his last game for the club.

Guendouzi is now on-loan with Hertha Berlin.

"I do not think he will play for Arsenal again," Campbell told Football Insider. "He doesn't have a future at Arsenal. Mikel Arteta put him in detention after the Brighton game last season, that is what it was – detention.

"A manager like Arteta wants to see that you can toe the line, take your punishment, keep your trap shut and get working. Guendouzi could not do it.

"He was given a clean slate at the start of the season, like Mezut Ozil, but they did not toe the line.

"Arteta is strong enough to exclude players he cannot trust. When a manager cannot trust you he is not going to back you.

"The good thing is they got him out on loan because you cannot afford to havie ill-disciplined players like that in and around the club. The right thing was to get him out on loan."
