Matteo Guendouzi seems to understand what it takes to endear himself to the Gunners’ fans.
After his North London derby debut he was seen celebrating the big victory with Arsenal fans… leaning out of his car on the way back home.
Unai Emery’s men stunned Tottenham with an electric performance and beat their bitter rivals 4-2 after a heroic second-half comeback.
Although Guendouzi only came on the pitch with 20 minutes to go, substituting Shkodran Mustafi, he seems to have already understood the importance of the rivalry with Spurs.
After the match, a video on social media emerged showing the Frenchman stopping his car on a north London street and celebrating the big win with fans.
With his window open, Guendouzi gives a bunch of fans celebratory fist bumps seemingly enjoying the encounter.
He even touches foreheads with one fan, patting him on the back of his head.
As the car is driving away, Guendouzi leans out raising his arms and encouraging the crowd to further celebration.
Fans on social media were delighted with one of their newest Gunners.
One wrote on Twitter: “It’s amazing. You can see he genuinely LOVES playing for Arsenal. Really hope he goes on to become a successful player for us for many, many years.”
The author of the video commented: “Yeah, if you don’t like Guendouzi, I don’t like you.”
Arsenal legend Ian Wright has also expressed his admiration for the young midfielder in the past.
After the clash that broke out between the players following Eric Dier’s first-half equaliser, Wright even tweeted: “Protect Mattéo Guendouzi at all costs!!!!!”
