Mustafi: Focus on the team

Shkodran Mustafi wants his Valencia teammates to stop worrying about individual issues and ‘think about the team and improve the situation.’

Los Che have endured a patchy start to the campaign and Mustafi wants the resumption of League action to herald a change in fortunes.

“In this situation, where things aren’t going our way, it’s not the time to think about personal things,” he said, AS reports.

“You have to think about the team and improve the situation. We’re here to work, not think about the future.

“I don’t want to talk about things that seem a long way off. We have training today, more tomorrow and then a game. There are things that are closer and I think about the team, not the future.

“[The defence] is doing its job. Before the game against Athletic Bilbao we had conceded only two goals. We always want to improve.”
