Fans think Matteo Guendouzi took parting Champions League dig at Arsenal after completing Marseille transfer

FANS think Matteo Guendouzi took a dig at one of his former clubsafter joining Marseille.

The 22-year-old former Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain star finally ended his Gunners hell by returning to France to join Jorge Sampaoli's side this week.

Guendouzi has initially signed for the Ligue 1 side on loan but Marseille have an obligation to buy him permanently next summer.

The midfielder's move spells the end of a torrid time in North London dominated by a series of incidents both on and off the pitch.

He spent the 2020-21 campaign on loan at Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin in Germany after falling out with boss Mikel Arteta.

Guendouzi hasn't featured for the Gunners since the 2-1 defeat against Brighton in June 2020 where he grabbed Neal Maupay's throat.

He then is said to have clashed with Arteta during a training camp in Dubai, with David Luiz then telling the youngster to 'grow up'.

And Guendouzi split fan opinion on which club he appeared to be digging out after expressing his delight in Marseille's European Cup triumph.

They have already won the Champions’ League. That is not the case for everyone. There are many who would like to have had it

The Frenchman told their website: “I am very happy to be at Marseille today.

“Marseille are one of the biggest European clubs. We know that very well.

“They have already won the Champions’ League. That is not the case for everyone. There are many who would like to have had it.”

Marseille are famously the only club in France to win the Champions League, having done so in 1993.

Guendouzi's former side Arsenal meanwhile have never lifted Europe's elite prize, with one fan tweeting: "He literally bodied Arsenal."

Another said: "Arsenal Football Club bodied", while others believe the dig was aimed at PSG – who have also never won the Champions League.

Guendouzi started his career at the academy of Mauricio Pochettino's side and a third added: "I guess he is talking about PSG not Arsenal."

But User Naif cheekily replied: "Could very well be talking about both since they both binned him. Two birds one stone…"
