Piers Morgan bashes Arsenal star after Man City show, compares him to Liverpool player
Piers Morgan took to social media to hit out at one of the defenders who featured for the Gunners in the clash with Manchester City on Sunday night.
Unai Emery and his side travelled to the Etihad stadium on Sunday, only a couple of days after the 2-1 victory over Cardiff City in the Premier League.
The Gunners have been hit with injury problems at the back in recent weeks and as a result, Emery was forced to make some changes to his back-line on Sunday.
That saw Shkodran Mustafi start alongside Laurent Koscielny with Sokratis now set to be sidelined for more than three weeks.
The German defender was bashed last season for not maintaining any sort of reliable form as the team failed to finish in the top four of the Premier League.
After watching Mustafi put in another below-par show in the 3-1 loss to Manchester City which saw him get substituted in the second half, Piers Morgan took to Twitter to criticize the defender while comparing him to Liverpool’s record signing from last year.
Mustafi cost half a Virgil van Dijk, but is 1/10th as good a defender. Possibly 1/12th. #MCFCvAFC
