Arsenal Fan Sets Up Petition Calling For Shkodran Mustafi To Receive 'Life Imprisonment'

Arsenal fans have had enough of Shkodran Mustafi.

The German defender, a £35 million signing from Valencia in 2016, was at fault for two goals in the dismal 3-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Sunday and received a right old slating from fans on social media.

But beyond that, some Gunners are so fed up with the former Everton centre-back and his knack of errors leading to goals, that a petition for him to receive 'life imprisonment' has been created. Yes, we're being serious.

'Gene. N' set it up on Change.Org and it's garnered over 600 signatures so far.

The description reads: "A man by the name of Shkodran Mustafi has been fooling a football club into paying him over £90,000 for broadcasting very disturbing content hidden in football matches.

"He is single-handedly responsible for millions of dollars of broken appliances like televisions and mobile devices, and there have been some cases of suicides related to him. There MUST be an investigation into the matter. I have been affected massively by this fiasco, and I really couldn't find any other solution."

Mustafi may be wanted behind bars by a section of his own supporters but his manager, Unai Emery, defended his dodgy display vs Palace and said he has been "consistent" this season.

"They have very good players," Emery said, as per Evening Standard.

"Secondly at set-pieces we didn't work and be strong like we are doing all season.

"We can speak to players usually and they can play very well, sometimes not play with due diligence, but I prefer to speak about consistency throughout the season.

"Every player is helping and playing with big performances but, today, defending against Benteke and Zaha you can suffer more."
