Mustafi hasn’t had the best of seasons this season. After under-performing in many games, the German defender has always been under the scrutiny with the Arsenal fans.
However, the preparation for the Europa League final has shown us another side of Mustafi. Look at that sumptuous bicycle kick. What a clean finish!
The hype was real among Arsenal fans:
“Absolutely mental, sell Aubameyang and put Mustafi as striker” says one Arsenal fan
“Statue needed beside Bergkamp,” adds another fan referring to the statue present outside the Emirates.
“Went 20 games unbeaten. Statue for him would do.” seems like many of the fans are hoping Mustafi gets a statue!
There were a few concerned fans too:
“This was defensive training? What is he doing? He’s clearly meant to clear it!” says a concerned fan
Fans surely see the funny side of it but all will hope that Mustafi manages to have a good game and stabilize the defence for the final.
The Gunners have conceded 51 goals this season in the Premier League and 67 overall which is not a good sign but they have a chance to save their season on Wednesday.
They take on Chelsea in the Europa League final and a win would not only add silverware but also guarantee a spot in the Champions League next season.
