Mesut Ozil tips 'underrated' Arsenal ace to be 'big player' in clear Mikel Arteta dig

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has backed Matteo Guendouzi to have a huge future in a clear dig at his manager Mikel Arteta. Guendouzi did not make a match day squad at Arsenal following last season’s 2-1 defeat at Brighton in June. The Frenchman clashed with Seagulls striker Neal Maupay, and manager Arteta exiled him for the remainder of the campaign.

Guendouzi, who was a regular under both Arteta and previous boss Unai Emery, was sent out on loan to Hertha Berlin for this season, with his future at Arsenal looking in serious doubt.

The 21-year-old has impressed in the Bundesliga, scoring his first goal for the club earlier this month, with his form leading to reports Hertha want to sign him on a permanent basis.

Ozil, who has received similar treatment by Arteta having been left out of both the club’s Premier League and Europa League squads this season, held a question and answer session on his Twitter account on Wednesday evening.

The 32-year-old was asked which player he has played with who he thinks is the most underrated.
