David Luiz shouldn’t be at that football club right that’s the problem Mustafi shouldn’t be at that football club, there’s an argument to say Xhaka shouldn’t be at that football club. Not good enough. ‘Mesut Ozil shouldn’t be at that football club but some clown gave him a £350,000-a-week contract for a guy who has been a liability.They’ve made bad signings, they’ve made bad decisions. That’s the bottom line. Now they’ve got a young, inexperienced manager who has been in the game a long time but not in management and he’s left with this.
