It’s time to leave : Emery sends strong message to Mustafi and Elneny.


Arsenal Boss, Unai Emery has never hidden his desire to see both Shkodran Mustafi and Mohamed Elneny leave Arsenal before the European transfer window closes.

The Spainard made some decent signing this season after the purchase of Pepe, Cebalos and David Luis coming in the team so as to fight for trophies this season.

“We have some players and they know their situation. For example, Elneny and Mustafi, they know their situation in the squad,” Emery said ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Liverpool on Saturday.


“I want the players to be happy here, I want the players to be protagonists here, and last year, for example, with Mustafi and Mo, when they didn’t play, they weren’t happy.

“I spoke with them a lot of times last year in this position and I think it is positive for them to leave and to sign for another team where they can be protagonists, they can be happy and can continue their careers as players.

“They are very big players but here for one circumstance or another circumstance they are going to have less chances to show their capacity or to be happy with us taking minutes of playing matches.”
