Arsenal fans react to performance of Dinos Mavropanos during Greece win
Arsenal starlet Konstantinos Mavropanos enjoyed a Sunday to remember as Greece defeated Norway 2-1 during a friendly clash.
It was a decent win for the central defender who earned his second cap for his country.
Mavropanos is on the back of an impressive season out on loan. He played 22 times for Stuttgart, catching the eye with his performances.
As a result, Mikel Arteta faces a big decision this summer. He must decide whether to loan him out again, or make him part of his plans.
Mavropanos does have eight Gunners outings to his name. The burly defender signed for Arsenal in 2018 from PAS Giannina.
At 23, the centre-back will now have his sights firmly on first-team football. His year in the Bundesliga has gone well and he’ll back himself for more action.
Mavropanos is under contract until 2023 and does still have a bit of time on his side.
Arsenal finished eighth in the Premier League last season and subsequently, they won’t have European football on the table next season.
The Greek enforcer has now enjoyed two successful spells away from the Emirates Stadium.
He has also spent time at Nuremberg and was once again in decent form for the German outfit.
Arsenal fans think Mavropanos deserves a chance
With William Saliba also due back in North London this summer, the future looks bright.
David Luiz has departed and there is certainly a defensive berth up for grabs.
There is an argument that Mavropanos is perhaps more accomplished at this stage in his career than Saliba.
He has just performed well in the Bundesliga, whereas the Frenchman has only featured in his homeland.
It is certainly a conundrum for Arteta to crack and one he will face head on this summer.
Some reports have suggested he might not be in the boss’ plans, but that doesn’t sit right with the fans.
After last night’s performance, supporters believe Mavropanos is deserving of a chance in the Arsenal team.
