'He's Involved In Every Goal Conceded,' Dietmar Hamann Lashes Out At Player Arsenal Freed In January

Dietmar Hamann, a former Premier League midfielder and Germany international, has taken aim at Schalke's Shkodran Mustafi, less than two months after his deal with Arsenal was ended.

The German defender was a decent player for the Gunners at times, but most fans will remember him for his many mistakes that usually led to goals while at Arsenal

Many fans were relieved to see Mustafi leave in January. Schalke signed him on a free transfer in the hopes that his experience would help them crawl out of the relegation zone.

Sadly, his arrival only made things go from bad to worse. Mustafi reportedly played a key part in getting Christian Gross sacked, and the former Schalke boss even admitted that he wouldn’t have signed him if he knew it was going to turn out this way. 

Hamann has now jumped on that train as well. He has lashed out at Mustafi’s performance in Schalke’s latest defeat in the Bundesliga and claimed that unfortunately, his arrival worsened the situation. Mustafi is said to have played a key role in the dismissal of Christian Gross, and the former Schalke manager also revealed that he would not have signed him if he had known how things would turn out.

Hamann has also boarded the bandwagon. He has slammed Mustafi's success in Schalke's latest Bundesliga loss, claiming that since his arrival, he has been responsible for every goal the Royal Blues have conceded.

“What these players make themselves is a disgrace for this great club,” he told Sky Austria.

He (Mustafi) arrives, then participates in the coach change and is involved in every goal conceded.

There's an explanation why this guy hasn't played for Arsenal in over a year. The players have an overabundance of self-assurance. They imagine themselves to be better than they are.”

Mustafi lost possession of the ball while attempting to dribble his way out of his own box. Wolfsburg scored, and Schalke's chances of staying in the Bundesliga this season will now need more than a miracle.

Last year, Mikel Arteta stated on many occasions that there were people at the club who were harmful to the environment. Many thought it was Mesut Ozil, but given what's been going on at Schalke, Mustafi may have been the one causing problems at Arsenal as well."
