The solution to Arsenal’s midfield problems is clear after ‘shocking’ Mikel Arteta decision


The north Londoners’ midfield maestro Granit Xhaka has never been short of taking a feature, yet it is uncommon that he does as such decidedly.

At the point when Xhaka put in a magnificent presentation at Euro 2020 as the Swiss team disposed of France on penalties, Gunners fans detected a startling sensation of hopefulness.

It was an exhibition that came not so much as two years after Granit Xhaka had responded angrily to his own fans sneering him as he was substituted in October 2019 against Crystal Palace, a game that looked lethal to his profession.

For some time it appeared he was bound to join Mourinho’s AS Roma however, rather he marked another arrangement in at the Emirates. Could he currently move forward for Arteta? Against City, in any case, we saw the Granit Xhaka Gunners fans know and abhor.

We have investigated what intellectuals and previous players have said in the past with regards to Granit Xhaka; a player with undoubted capacity yet too many baffling traits.

Ian Wright

Following his red card against City, Gunners legend Ian Wright hammered Granit Xhaka for not having the option to show a quiet head when facing it.

“Xhaka’s tackle, It’s insane. You don’t have to handle like that against anyone, it’s a horrendous test,” Ian Wright revealed to PL Productions.

“At the point when you’re 2-0 down against City you need someone like Granit Xhaka, who is an accomplished player, to be quiet since this could be anything City need it to be.

“That is a perilous test, he needed to go. I think they said he has been shipped off multiple times currently, I don’t know what it is. I don’t know how Mikel is attempting to legitimize that.

Charlie Nicholas

For Charlie Nicholas, the glaring issue is the manner by which the North London club can’t depend on Granit Xhaka, indicating that the Swiss international midfield maestro should kill his sporadic nature on the pitch to be a triumph with the club.

“He did what he’s constantly done. He played the joker card. He is the joker of our club,” Charlie Nicholas said on the Where’s Jeff Podcast, after Xhaka’s red card against the Citizens.

“How he can maneuver AS Roma toward paying £17m… I would’ve actually dropped him off there… And then, at that point he signs another agreement.

“At the point when you take a gander at the alleged chief in Granit Xhaka, that is a cop-out. It was a flat out disguise [the red card] and it simply summarizes everything concerning that football club.”

Gary Neville

As the new worldwide break found some conclusion, Gary Neville showed up on Sky Sports News to examine the Gunners’ bleak beginning to the PL season. He blamed the club’s accomplished players, like Granit Xhaka, for not showing sufficient administration in the changing area.

“I think with the Gunners that occasionally it’s not the signings that they get; it’s more the real senior players that you take a gander at and think, all things considered, what are they getting from them?,” he said.

“What are they getting from Pierre-emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka? Those players that you think would hold them together.

“They must truly kind of get themselves squarely in the following not many weeks and make an environment and culture in that changing area of one that they’re all together and adjusted behind Arteta together to get exhibitions.”

Nigel Winterburn

Nigel Winterburn who is a former Arsenal player says it is a disposition issue keeping Xhaka down and said he was unable to accept the midfielder was given the captaincy against the Bees following his upheaval at the fans.

“Arteta gave Xhaka the captaincy back on Friday night and clearly feels he is a player that could assume that liability,” Winterburn revealed to ShakezSports.com.

“I couldn’t exactly trust it myself; I was astounded to see Granit Xhaka being given back the armband.”
