Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny’s partnership since they both started playing together has got Arsenal fans all over talking and dreaming again. The pair have kept 4 clean sheets in the last 4 games across all competititions and judging by that, this doesn’t look like changing anytime soon.
This great start to his Arsenal career has got the German International talking about how this incredible partnership came to be. Speaking to the Arsenal official website, Mustafi credited his partner for this feat.
“If you play with someone who understands football in a different way, it’s even more difficult to get on with, but if you have someone next to you that sees football the same way you see football and that you think football, I think it’s easier to play with,” he said. “We are quite similar in the style of playing, he understands things that I do, I understand things that he does,”
“I’m happy to have someone next to me that my understanding is good with, but I think it’s not about me and Lolo, I think it’s about all of the team.
“I think we are doing really good in the last games and obviously that gives us less to do at the back, so the few things we have to do, I think we dealt with it well. But I think the credit goes to the whole team.”
The pair return to action later today after the international break hoping to continue their run. We hope that continues too.
