The Gunners have been heavily criticised for their failure to produce consistent form in all competitions this season and Arsene Wenger’s future at the club has been placed firmly in the spotlight as a result.
Arsenal have already lost eight games in all competitions since the turn of the year and they have been struggling to string together consistent performances.
The north London side are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table and it looks unlikely that they will be able to break back into the top four before the season is out.
Arsenal’s last realistic hope of qualifying for next season’s Champions League will be to win the Europa League this season, with Wenger’s men set to take on CSKA Moscow over two legs in the quarter-finals starting next week.
Now, Arsenal defender Mustafi has lifted the lid on a private meeting amongst the Gunners squad as they tried to iron out their issues.
Mustafi is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard: “Everyone knew it was a difficult period.
“The meeting was about trying to listen to different opinions, different ideas and different feelings, and I think we found a way to try to change a bit.
“It’s not that easy because one meeting is not going to change a lot, especially not during the season when you’re playing every three days, but it was important to speak our opinions out loud.
“Overall it was about giving 110 per cent to try to get out of it, and I think we managed it well.”
Arsenal return to Premier League action on Sunday when they host Stoke City at The Emirates.
