Arsenal fans can’t quite believe that they paid such a large amount of money for Shkodran Mustafi. The German international had an absolute shocker yesterday as the Gunners fell to a 3-1 defeat at The Etihad and when he came off injured the fans will have been delighted to see the back of him.
Shkodran Mustafi was unable to finish #MCIARS…
…here’s @UnaiEmery_ with an update on the defender

When Unai Emery gave an update on the player after the game the Gunners were all hoping that it might be something serious that would see him miss a lot of game time, although it seems their wishes haven’t been granted. You can read an update on the injured German’s setback on the Arsenal website, although if you’re one of those fans who’s hoping he may miss a few weeks, it’s probably best not to.
Mustafi has proven time and time again that Arsenal were fools to spend such a fortune to bring him to The Emirates, and they’d do anything to see the 26-year-old taken off their hands. However, if he continues to defend the way he did yesterday against Manchester City then it’s hard to see any sort of reputable club coming in for the ex-Valencia man.

Sounds bad, he should retire

He’s always unable to finish games when we get thrashed.

Hopefully he's unable to finish the rest of the season the fraud

The most foolish and outrageous player ever to be in the team

Shame he wasn’t unable to start

This guy should be sold, can't withstand playing against top teams

The Gunners would love to be rid of Mustafi and always expect the worse when they see his name in the starting lineup.
