Mustafi hits out at 's***' Arsenal exit rumours following summer of speculation

Mustafi hits out at 's***' Arsenal exit rumours following summer of speculation

SHKODRAN MUSTAFI launched an X-rated rant at reporters over questions about his Arsenal future.

This is why Ancelotti was said to be "fearing" a phone call from the Italian FA, as he knew it would have been a very hard job to turn down if put in front of him. "That's your job.If I have been talking to clubs or if I haven't, it's only rumours".

Saturday's 2-0 over North London rivals Tottenham did the Gunners a world of good in their hunt for a top four finish, closing the gap with Mauricio Pochettino's side to just one point, even if they still remain 12 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Mustafi is not only vocal to journalists (and really, with 473,000 followers it's simply not on for Mustafi to punch down like that) but is also vocal in the dressing room; post-match, Arsene Wenger cited Mustafi's communcation, calling him a "leader" like Per Mertesacker.

With Per Mertesacker set to take over Arsenal's academy at the end of this season and Gabriel Paulista having returned to La Liga last summer, the Gunners need every centre-back option they can get their hands on at present.

With uncertainty over Sanchez and Ozil's futures and some poor results this season, the pressure was on Arsenal but the fighting spirit is still there Mustafi said. "I'm here, I'm standing in front of you in an Arsenal shirt". "If you win today and lose next weekend you are back where you were". "We looked risky. Everyone played a part in the result". When they have bad games people think of course its because of they want to go."They love the club, they love the team, but the quality of the contract has to be right and as well other top clubs are out there offering contracts". Arsenal are obviously one of the biggest clubs in Europe and the fact that they are underperforming will make the headlines.
