Shkodran Mustafi Backs Bernd Leno To Succeed
Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi has backed Arsenal’s new goalkeeper Bernd Leno to succeed at the Emirates Stadium this season.
The German goalie joined the North London outfits from Bayer Leverkusen for £19m this summer but has failed to make single appearance for the team after two round of matches.
Despite the unimpressive start to his Arsenal career, Mustafi — who was his teammates at international level — said he’s confident the goalie will have a successful spell at Arsenal.
He also praised Leno for his attitude on and off the pitch, according to him, Leno is a great fellow to be with because he possesses all the characteristics of a brilliant goalie.
Mustafi further speaks on the level of competition in the Gunners camp and how it motivates the players to put in extra concentration in training sessions.
The German international said there is an intense competition among players in camp as everyone is improving on a daily basis so as to keep their place in the manager’s ( Emery) starting lineup in the team.
Mustafi was in action for the Gunners in their 3-2 defeat to Chelsea last Saturday but he admitted he knows that his place in the first team is up for grab, should he fail to live up to standard.
Aaron Ramsey has seen his position taken by Alex Iwobi, while Mesut Ozil must improve up his game else he lost his place to Lucas Torreira in Emery’s Lineup against West Ham
