Ian Wright hails Mikel Arteta for resurrecting Shkodran Mustafi’s Arsenal career

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has heaped praise on Gunners boss Mikel Arteta for saving Shkodran Mustafi’s career at the club.
The German found himself out of favour under Unai Emery and he’s taken huge swathes of criticism at the Emirates since his 35m move from Valencia in 2016.
The 27-year-old was free to leave the club last summer but Arsenal failed to find a buyer and he didn’t appear to be the perfect fit for Arteta’s style of play.
However, the German’s been a mainstay in the starting XI and has formed a strong partnership with David Luiz in recent weeks.

And Wright believes it is down to Arteta’s man management and focus on tactics. ‘Mustafi is playing fantastic now,’ Wright told Premier League productions.
‘It wasn?t long ago that after the Chelsea game I thought he was someone they had to move on.
‘It seems like he?s [Arteta] getting a tune out of him now.
‘He?s become one of our most solid players.’
