Matteo Guendouzi’s loan spell has hit a period of turbulence after a half-time argument and the sacking of Hertha BSC manager Bruno Labbadia.
After seemingly starting his loan spell with Hertha BSC so well, Matteo Guendouzi now faces a bit of an uncertain future with the club.
Last Tuesday, Guendouzi was involved in an argument with teammate Matheus Cunha at half-time as Hertha trailed to Hoffenheim. They lost the match 3-0 and followed that up with a 4-1 defeat to Werder Bremen on Saturday.
The result of Hertha’s form is that the board have decided to sack manager Bruno Labbadia and managing director Michael Preetz.
You wouldn’t think that Labbadia’s successor would drop Guendouzi. The 21-year-old has played every minute for the Bundesliga side since his first start in November.
But it’s always difficult when the manager who signed you leaves, particularly during a loan spell. The new boss didn’t bring you in and knows you’ll be gone in the summer, so their motivation to include you is solely if they think you’ll win them matches.
Guendouzi will just have to ensure he makes an impression when the new appointment is made.
