Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov jokingly admitted how watching Arsenal’s Matteo Guendouzi infuriated him while making an appearance for Goals on Sunday.
The Bulgarian international has been to most parts of the globe since leaving North London, enjoying a long and distinguished career at leading clubs like Manchester United, AS Monaco and Bayern Leverkusen but it seems he still holds Spurs close to his heart.
The 37-year-old couldn’t contain the Spurs fan in him while talking about Guendouzi during the show and went on to say about how it hurts to see him turn out so good at the Emirates.
The Gunners signed the relatively unknown 19-year-old from Ligue 1 outfit Lorient in July as one of Unai Emery’s five signings during the summer and the Frenchman has since emerged as one of the finds of the season.
Guendouzi has turned himself into a key player for the Spanish boss, featuring in 20 matches in all competitions as Arsenal have gone on a 21 game unbeaten run.
Berbatov insists that the Frenchman is ‘unbelievable’ and says he looks pretty comfortable in Arsenal’s first-team despite being just a teenager, lauding his box to box ability in particular.
But the striker admitted at one point of the show about how he does not enjoy seeing him play for Arsenal possibly because of his allegiance to Spurs although he does not mention it explicitly during the session.
