Arsenal youngster Mattéo Guendouzi as reacted positively after completing his loan move to the new Bundesliga billionaire club Hertha Berlin for the rest of the season.
The Frenchman completed the switch to Germany as lack of regular game time became a major problem for him at Arsenal under Mikel Arteta. Mattéo was a regular during Unai Emery’s era as Arsenal manager.

Speaking to Hertha Berlin TV during his presentation on Monday afternoon, Guendouzi said he was happy to be in Germany, where he faces a new challenge.
Furthermore, he went on to credit himself a “team player” who “likes to have the ball and provide templates”. The 21-year old midfielder believes he can add quality to the team.
A new partnership phase with fellow compatriot
At Hertha Berlin, Guendouzi is expected to form a new partnership block with fellow French international Lucas Tousart, whom he already played with at the French national U21 setup.
For Guendouzi, keeping the Arsenal hopes alive would be adding more hard work and consistently in Germany. This season, the Berliners are considered as one of the favourites for the Bundesliga title.
Last weekend, the Berliners almost snatched a point off Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. But a late minute spot-kick from Robert Lewandowski damaged their impressive comeback.
