Arsenal fans have told Shkodran Mustafi to leave the club… on his birthday!
The Germany international turned 27 on Wednesday and the Gunners issued a tweet wishing the defender a happy birthday.
However, a number of fans responded to the tweet insisting that 6 foot defender should leave the club as soon as possible.
Indeed, he has endured a difficult season despite playing a total of 34 times in all competitions.
Mustafi has struggled to adapt to life under Unai Emery and has been benched for some of the Gunners’ biggest games this season – he sat out the 2-0 victories over both Chelsea and Manchester United. He did, however, play in the 3-1 FA Cup defeat to the Red Devils.
It remains to be seen whether Mustafi will continue to play for the club between now and the end of the season. Arsenal, of course, play Napoli in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday and then face Crystal Palace, Wolves, Leicester City, Brighton & Hove Albion and Burnley as they look to qualify for the Champions League.
