Arsenal head coach, Mikel Arteta, is confident he can cure Shkodran Mustafi of the costly errors that have plagued his career.
Mustafi’s latest howler came during the 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Tuesday.
The German defender’s under-hit backpass, led to the incident which saw David Luiz sent off for bringing down Tammy Abraham in the box.
But Arteta has backed the 27-year-old ahead of Monday night’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at Bournemouth and still believes he can coach the mistakes out of him.
“Absolutely. It’s my job to do that.
“I don’t believe that at 27 you cannot improve certain aspects of the game. I really believe that you can.
“I’ve worked with players like this, I’ve had team-mates like this and there is always a moment where there is a click.
“There are certain patterns that lead to these type of scenarios [mistakes] and the more of those patterns that we take away, slowly they will decrease. I’m confident we can do that,” Arteta told reporters.
