Kujtim Mustafi, the father and agent of Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi, has explained why German starlet Daniel Hanslik was photographed with him, his son and Mesut Ozil last week.
The photo sparked rumours that Hanslik was having a trial with the Gunners but Kujtim explained that the picture was simply taken when they went out for dinner after Hanslik came to watch Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Watford. He told local German newspaper HNA.
“We watched a game of Arsenal and met for dinner together. There you do a photo.”
The Mustafi’s and Hanslik hail from the same East Hesse region in Germany, and it maybe the case that the SV Steinbach midfielder is now a client of Mustafi’s father.
When asked by HNA, Kujtim Mustafi refused to comment on whether he was indeed Hanslik’s agent or not. In addition to the Gunners, the 20 year old has been linked with Borussia Dortmund after scoring 16 goals in 20 games in all competitions for the German fifth division side Steinback this season.
