Arsenal fans on Twitter aren’t convinced by Sokratis

This summer has been a refreshing one for Arsenal fans. The club has signed five new players already this summer, with an emphasis on their defensive options. However, a lot of fans have been questioning new signing, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, claiming that he’s not good enough and many have been expecting Mustafi to improve under Unai Emery.

The upcoming season is going to be a strange one for a lot of Arsenal fans. For many, it’s the first season in their lifetime where Arsene Wenger won’t be in the dugout and whilst a lot of fans had been calling for the Frenchman to leave for a long time, they’re now entering uncharted waters with Unai Emery at the helm. So far, the Spaniard has won over a lot of fans with his changes but the real test will be when the football starts again properly in August.

The defensive issues have been a serious concern for Emery and he’s brought in a goalkeeper, a right-back, a centre-back and a defensive midfielder to sort their problems out. However, some fans are still worried about the centre of the club’s defence. Sokratis looks soft and Mustafi has more than a few mistakes in him, other than that, Laurent Koscielny is out injured and the club then only have three young inexperienced centre-backs left to choose from.

Just from a few tweets you can see that the fans are far from convinced by their defensive options.
