“Things can change quickly in football” Arsenal loanee hints at not returning to the Emirates

Konstantinos Mavropanos has revealed that he isn’t sure if he will return to Arsenal after his current loan spell at Stuttgart.

The 23-year-old Greek defender is one of the last players Arsene Wenger signed for Arsenal having joined the Gunners in January 2018.

He has rarely been used by the club and still doesn’t feature in the plans of Mikel Arteta.

He has spent much of the last two years on loan at German sides and has thrived in the Bundesliga this season.

Arsenal is overhauling their team and will need to decide on his future in the summer.

William Saliba is another defender doing very well on loan at the French side, Nice.

Both players will hope to break into the team when they return, but Mavropanos is keeping the door to his future open and says he does not know if he would return to the Emirates.

He wants to focus on the rest of his time with Stuttgart, but he is open to joining them again after this campaign.

Speaking to Bild, Mavropanos said: ‘I can’t say that at the moment (whether I will return). Things can change quickly in football. 

‘I still have two months here in Stuttgart and would like to end the season with the team as high up as possible. 

‘The door at VfB is open for me – that’s very good. But I can only really think about the future once we have talks with for the new season.’

    It’s not down to a Mav whether he returns or not, it’s down to Arsenal.

    Mavropanos is just being realistic.
    He does not know what Arsenal is thinking about him right now so naturally is leaving all doors open
    Including a return to the Em.

  3. Ken says:

    There many players who do not want to play under Arteta because of his lack of man management and favouritism.
    Arteta has favourites , whom he will play at any cost and others like Saliba, Martinelli, Guendouzi, he would bench. Same attitude was applied to ESR, then he had to play him because of injury and we were too close to the relegation zone.

    If history is anything to go by, Arsenal have a tendency to sell some of their best talent, and buy average or injury prone players to replace them. Mavropanos is definitely an upgrade on Luiz and Gabriel with his strength and pace. He needs to be integrated into the side. But I fear that Arsenal will just take the money on offer.
