Xhaka is fed up with keyboard warriors

Granit Xhaka has challenged his critics to say it to his face instead of hiding behind keyboards.

The Swiss midfielder has had a volatile relationship with some sections of the Arsenal fan base since joining from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2016.

Some Gunners fans feel he hasn’t been consistently good enough at the heart of their midfield, while others say his hot-headed temper has cost the team on occasion.

The uneasy momentum came to a head in 2019 when Xhaka was substituted in a tie against Crystal Palace.

The fans booed him as he left the field and he responded by sarcastically clapping, holding his ear and forming the words “f*** off”.

Xhaka, who was relieved of the Gunners’ captaincy by former boss Unai Emery following the incident, has also been heavily criticized after poor results on social media.

Now the Switzerland 100 cap star has told The Players’ Tribune: “Of course it’s quiet when we win, but as soon as we lose a few games the same critics will be back.

“That’s how football works, but I’m not going to change for a guy hiding behind a keyboard. No chance. It’s a little weird because in real life nobody has ever said to me, ‘You suck.’ Never.

“Nobody says it to my face. What do you say? The usual ‘Ah, you’re the best, you’re so good…’.

“Some people are serious, but then others come online and say, ‘Get him out of our club.’ So next time say it to my face. ‘Granite, today you were s***.’ No problem! I promise I’ll take this in one

Granite: Tell me I shit in my face
