Matteo Guendouzi spent nearly a decade in Paris Saint-Germain’s youth system, but as many young players see, it’s tough to crack the first team. As a result, the midfielder left the capital club in search of more playing time.
The Guendouzi spent two seasons at FC Lorient before he made his big move to Arsenal FC. However, the transfer hasn’t gone as planned, which has resulted in The Gunners deciding to loan out the young midfielder to Hertha Berlin this season.
Despite leaving PSG’s youth system in 2014, Guendouzi continues to hold the French giants close to his heart. The Arsenal midfielder states that he wants his favorite club to go far in the UEFA Champions League during an interview with Le Parisien.
Nonetheless, he acknowledges the challenging task that’s ahead for PSG taking on the FC Bayern Munich.
“I started at six years old at PSG. This is my favorite club in France. I wish him to go as far as possible and to take revenge on last season,” Guendouzi said. “In my opinion, they don’t need the advice to play against Bayern, which is a great team, surely the best in Europe right now.”
If PSG hopes to get back to another final, they’ll have to get past the German giants, who they fell to in last year’s final.
