Shkodran Mustafi doubtful for Community Shield clash against Chelsea after Arsenal defender’s extended break
Shkodran Mustafi was part of Germany’s Confederations Cup winning squad
Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi is a doubt for Sunday’s Community Shield clash with Chelsea.
The 25-year-old returned to pre-season training on Sunday after being given an extended break following his participation at the Confederations Cup with Germany.
That leaves the centre-back with just one week to prepare for Sunday’s season curtain raiser with Chelsea.
And, when quizzed on Mustafi’s chances of appearing at Wembley this weekend, Wenger admitted the German may not be ready in time.
“Mustafi has come back today (Sunday) and will have tests during the week,” said Wenger.
“For the weekend [Community Shield], he will be short [on fitness].”
