Based on what Ornstein said a few months ago it doesn't sound that serious:What’s wrong with having disciplinary issues? Don’t tell me there is a new culture in football where unless you’re some angel you’re considered a problem.
Young players with dodgy discipline is a part of football, it’s the job of the manager and club to mature him.
After Guendouzi’s spot of bother over the last couple of weeks, somebody has also informed The Athletic that this “is not the only time Guendouzi has been reprimanded for his behaviour.
“The training incident,” Ornstein reveals, “was a mid-session altercation with one of his team-mates, which led to both men being pulled up by Arteta, although the 20-year-old was deemed the guiltier party and given a more stern dressing-down.
“But also during the five-day camp, Arsenal’s technical director Edu had to tell off the Frenchman for his behaviour at an external event,” Ornstein adds. “The group were enjoying some local music when Guendouzi briefly removed his shirt and waived it around in support of the act.”
What I wouldn't do for a swap between those players (i.e. we sell Guendouzi, and then using the funds from that sale, we make up the shortfall and get Casemiro)... I get that his wages would be massive, but his work rate and ability to tackle are exactly what we need to tighten us up. You can build a midfield around a player like that.
Even if you're joking, that could actually effect people's perceptions. Same thing happened with Fellaini/Moyes at United I think.I think I associate this guy too much now with all the crap that's happened since 2018. Came in just as it all kicked off, he's like the poster child for the post-Wenger boondoggle.
Not fair, but I'm afraid that means he's gotta go.
