Unai Emery has wiped out the polemics on Mattéo Guendouzi's hair by telling his young man to cut it.
The French midfielder had frizzy hair pulled by Marouane Fellaini during a 2-2 draw for Arsenal with Manchester United on Wednesday. The Belgian, who has recently freed himself of his Afro brand, has escaped the punishment of the referee Andre Marriner and Emery believes that the accident is now cut and dried.
"I think the best thing is that you cut your hair before the next game, so the problem is over," said the manager of Arsenal. "Just like Fellaini, I did not say that to him, but I respect the players a lot, their hair and their hair color."
The Spaniard, who hopes his team will keep on gelling while they run an unbeaten match of 20 games in the home game with Huddersfield on Saturday, tried to defuse the accident.
"I think when I was a player it was the same," said Emery. "But today with all cameras, everyone can capture all situations in 90 minutes, but for me some questions are only among the players on the pitch."
Emery said that Rob Holding was still evaluated after suffering an injury at the knee to United, but fears that the defender is facing a long time. "The first news is not good", he said
