Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi risks sanction for goal celebration

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi could be fined by the FA for his goal celebration after scoring against Cardiff City on Sunday.

The Germany international thundered a header past Neil Etheridge in goal for the Bluebirds to put the Gunners ahead, before wheeling away in delight.

However, Mustafi then put his two hands together and flapped his fingers, apparently in reference to the double-headed eagle, which is present on Albania's national flag.

The Mirror says Mustafi could now face punishment - in the form of a fine - if the FA deem his celebration to be a display of political symbolism.

Arsenal won 3-2 at Cardiff.
