Football fans have been mocking the potential defensive pairing of David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi following the Brazilian’s deadline day move to Arsenal.
The Gunners paid £7m for Luiz, who will sign a two-year deal. Agreeing personal terms should be a formality and, barring any unexpected hitches.
Both Mustafi and Luiz share a fairly erratic playing style and football fans on social media have been joking about the prospect of the pair joining forces.
One person tweeted: ‘*Unai Emery trying to explain defending to both David Luiz and Mustafi 10 mins before a match*’, accompanied by a picture of Homer Simpson standing next to Krusty the clown in identical clothing.
Luiz missed first-team training on Wednesday as the Chelsea defender attempted to force through the shock move to the Gunners on deadline day.
Sportsmail understands Luiz has been an increasingly disruptive figure at the club’s Cobham HQ in recent days, culminating in Wednesday’s surprise development.
It will certainly be interesting to see how the two players combine at the heart of Arsenal’s defence in 2019-20. – Daily Mail
