What Gary Neville told Lee Dixon when Arsenal signed Mustafi in 2016.

Neville managed Mustafi during his time as Valencia manager and told Dixon in 2016 that he "couldn't believe" Arsenal spent £35 million on him.

Furthermore, Neville said Valencia once "couldn't give away" the 25-year-old - that's how bad he was for the Spanish club.

Says it all really. Dixon was speaking as a guest at the Arsenal Supporters' Trust AGM on Monday night, where he also said: "Mustafi... don't get me started on him."

Yes I was there and Dixon was not complimentary about Bellerin either. He sees him as a major cause if Lacazettes failure



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Not to different to what i physically feel about mustafi. He hasn't had one game where he didn't make stupid mistakes in my opinion. They just aren't exposed in every single match because not every mistake is published every game.

It just must goes to its title to use terms like, "world cup winner" as s measure of individual success. Even if klose started every single game for Germany in the wc, it didn't mean we should sign him.

One of the biggest reasons for wengers failure is its failure to kick out his back room staff long back.

Rice, rowley, bould, the physio, physio's son. All stayed far too long then they should have

Funny I saw this last night and found it interesting. Just for the sake of balance, here is Neville speaking about Mustafi in November 2016...

Mustafi has got an incredible amount of natural ability and talent, good physical capability and I think with age and maturity he will grow into being a fantastic defender,” he told Metro.

He’s got all the attributes you would want. I think that ultimately it will help him playing along Koscielny who has got experience there playing at Arsenal. I think he’s got all the makings of it.

Defenders will mature with age and I think he will get better and better.

Make of that what you will.

To be honest, Gary Neville knows a lot about playing as a right back but his spell at Valencia shows he knows @#$%& all about other players and how to tell if they're any good or not.
