Xhaka certainly pings the ball but word to Gabriel who dealt with them all like they were nothing. Its the fear of making a mistake.Weight of some of his short passes has been awful of late. He pings them all the time. Work on it lad, it's not like you are passing to DB10.
Xhaka is 3rd captain after Auba & Laca I think. When Laca & Xhaka have been on the pitch at the same time - Laca had the armband
I have said it many times.
Xhaka is like He Jordan Henderson at Liverpool.
We fans have always made fun and not rated him. Even Fergie made fun of his body posture. Saying how his legs are awkward and the way he runs is weird. will never buy him..”. Lol
But manager after manager that has taken over at Liverpool seem to have gotten to know the guy and trusted him.
That is the same with Xhaka. We keep pulling our hairs out as fans asking why managers rate him. But Wenger, Emery m, Ljumberg, Arteta etc all seem to rate him. While hyped up so called world class fans favourites like like Özil are frozen out consistently.
Arteta is smart, he's taking him out of the lineup because he was playing like **** for the last two matches, if only Emery had learn that lesson.
