Shkodran Mustafi (20)


#860

not a change of mind, just a statement all i was saying is if there is nothing genuinely wrong with him and he put that performance in then cried wolf to be subbed instead of being a man and helping the team then he hasnt got the fight for it and he should have genuinely being sold and wenger probably did see something bad in him.


#861

Performance wise, he was at fault, no doubt.
For the behind the scene stuffs, better wait longer and see.

Maybe he was really injured…


#862

Certainly the most reasonable explanation… I honestly cannot fathom a player at that level faking an injury after making a big mistake… absolute shambles if true, but hard to believe. Now, maybe it was something he COULD have fought through and he took a bit of the easy way out, but still…


#863

If he did fake it, I agree, get rid of him.


#864

Even if he did fake it, and I’m not convinced he did, our performance improved once he left the field anyway, partly because we brought on another attacker.

I actually don’t care if I’m being honest.


#865

If he faked it, his contract should be terminated immediately. Terrible behaviour.


#866

Maybe irrelevant…
Fake injury and diving… Which is worse???


#867

Surely he didn’t fake it. I can’t see the reason or motive for doing so. Seems far fetched to me if I’m honest


#868

Not a chance he faked it. Sorry, but a professional footballer doesn’t do that.

It’s up there with people thinking Wenger allows Özil to play and miss whatever games he chooses.


#869

Not buying that he faked it either.

He really doesn’t seem the type at all.


#870

Faked it but we’ll never know. Go Inter


#871

Ramsey literally did the same last year against Pool. When the going gets tough, pretend to be injured and go home.


#872

Plenty of professional fake it when their embarrassing mistakes leads to a goal.


#873

Feigning injury is something a footballer would never do, footballers are known for being totally honest when it comes to whether they are hurt or not. There definitely isn’t a wide spread culture of lying about that kind of thing.

Your faith in the honesty of professional footballers is almost sweet in its naivety.


#874

Absolutely nothing happened for him to be injured. You could watch that replay a thousand times and the only time he suddenly becomes injured is when Lingard pokes the ball in the net.


#875

Guess we are not gonna see him for a while. Wenger is surely furious with him.


#876

Lol I knew he wasn’t injured he wanted to come off because he fucked it for the second goal.

He’s been brilliant this season though so maybe it was just a bad game


#877

Pussy, then.


#878

A professional football player should never sub himself off after 10-15 mins because he made a mistake.

If there was no injury, I don’t believe he should ever be selected for the club again. What did we pay £35m plus good wages for if he doesn’t have the mental fortitude to play on after an error?


#879

Campbell not only left the pitch but the stadium and country that time against West Hamand he was back playing within a couple of months. Honestly, we shouldn’t be judging this until we know a bit more.
