Hertha Berlin confirmed this Friday the package of Mattéo Guendouzi until the end of the season. The French midfielder suffers from a fractured metatarsal in his right foot and will miss the end of the Euro Espoirs with the Bleuets.
There was little hope after the injury exit of Mattéo Guendouzi this Thursday during the victory of Hertha Berlin against Freiburg (3-0) in the Bundesliga. It is now confirmed. Replaced a few minutes before half-time, the French midfielder is suffering from a fractured metatarsal in his right foot. Supported by two members of the Berlin staff to leave the field, the player loaned by Arsenal will not play again this season. Bad news confirmed this Friday by the German club after new medical examinations.
“Mattéo Guendouzi is ruled out for the rest of the season, Hertha Berlin said in a statement. The scans confirmed that the midfielder suffered a metatarsal fracture. Heal yourself quickly, Matteo!”
Undisputed holder with Hertha Berlin, Mattéo Guendouzi has played 24 Bundesliga games this season. Following his injury contracted on Thursday, the 22-year-old Frenchman will miss his team’s last four games and will therefore not participate in the fight for maintenance. The capital club is fourteenth but tied with the Arminia Bielefeld, barrage.

Package for Euro Espoirs, uncertain for the Olympics
In addition to the end of the season in the Bundesliga, Mattéo Guendouzi will be sorely missed by Bleuets for the end of the Euro Espoirs. Captain of the selection led by Sylvain Ripoll, the midfielder spent by the PSG training center will not participate following the continental tournament (from May 31 to June 6). Qualified for the quarter-finals, the French team will challenge the Netherlands on May 31 in Hungary.
With this fracture of the right foot, Mattéo Guendouzi also loses any chance of appearing in the extended list of Didier Deschamps for the Euro Seniors from (June 11 to July 11) and sees his participation in the Tokyo Olympics called into question.
After Jeff Reine-Adelaide, victim of a serious knee injury, the Espoirs probably lost another frame with the Japanese meeting scheduled for July 21 to August 7. At the Tokyo Olympics, the Bleuets will face the host country, Mexico and South Africa. 75 days before the start of the football competition in Japan, the 22-year-old midfielder will have to whip to get back on time.
