Currently sidelined with a broken metatarsal, Matteo Guendouzi couldn’t have timed his injury any better as he now has lots of free time to spend with his new daughter.
Matteo Guendouzi was recently ruled out for the season with a broken metatarsal, picked up when he kicked the ground during a match against SC Freiburg last week.
The 22-year-old won’t be too downbeat about the whole thing, however, as he’s just become a father, announcing on social media the arrival of his daughter, Mayleen:
Now, I can say it, I’m the happiest man in the world and the 07/05/2021 it’s the most beautiful day of my life because Mayleen GUENDOUZI my princess is born ❤️❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/dvclnc89Ct

Guendouzi is expected to be sold this summer with Marseille showing an interest in the precocious midfielder.
A question does have to be asked, however, if becoming a father might settle him down somewhat and allow him to fulfil what is clearly enormous potential.
Guendouzi made 24 appearances for Hertha, scoring two, assisting three and picking up five yellow cards, just one more than Dani Ceballos and the same number as Mohamed Elneny.
