Arsenal youngster Matteo Guendouzi has spoken of his commitment to the club revealing he gives ‘150%’ in every game.
The 19-year-old signed for Unai Emery’s side from French club Lorient last summer, and has since established himself as a fan favourite making 34 appearances in all competitions.
The French U-21 international has impressed with his work-rate and maturity since arriving in North London, and admits giving everything is the ‘secret’ to his success.
“When I came to Arsenal last year, we went in pre-season to Singapore and I knew it was important for me to show what I could do,” Guendouzi told a pre-match press conference.
“I knew I had to play well and I did play well at the time, so I got the confidence of the coach and the other players. Hopefully it will go on like that for a while.
“I’m a young player, so I have a lot of energy. I run for my teammates, I fight for my team and I play with my heart and give 150 per cent in every match – I give everything. That’s the secret I suppose [to my success so far].”
Arsenal travel to France tonight to face Rennes in the last 16 of the Europa League.
