Augsburg trolls Xhaka after his nightmarish day in north London derby

Granit Xhaka had a day to forget as Tottenham beat Arsenal 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Swiss midfielder has been hailed for the turnaround that he has enjoyed under Mikel Arteta, but his performance on Sunday leaves a lot to be desired.

Coming up against a strong Tottenham midfield anchored by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Xhaka was reduced to making ineffective passes as well as diving into tackles unnecessarily for much of the game.

He may wish he hadn’t played the game and his performance was rated at the level of Augsburg by a fan on Twitter. The German side responded by trolling the midfielder even more.

The fan tweeted: “Augsburg is Xhaka’s level”

And the German side replied to him with: “Respect us.”

The tweet made the day for several football fans who supported them by talking about how terrible the former Borussia Monchengladbach man truly is.

Mikel Arteta has made the midfielder one of his trusted men since he became Arsenal’s manager and this might be a good time for him to have a rethink of how important Xhaka truly is to the team.

Alongside Willian and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Xhaka should be the leading lights in this Arsenal team, but the likes of Bukayo Saka is doing a better job than them right now.

    Xhaka has never improved. It’s only the media who praised him for nothing. The guy is not Arsenal material

    Any coach that include Xhaka in his line up is truly not a good coach.

    Emery, arteta etc are good example of terrible coach and arsenal is a terrible club for keeping a terrible player like xhaka.
    The presence of Xhaka is always a boost to the opponents.

    He is a specialist in diving, backward and sideway passes.

      Diving? Conceding a stupid penalty against Palace(?) I recall. But diving? People are frustrated, I get it. Xhaka doesn’t pick himself. Willian either. Lacazette.. I think it’s kind of arrogant from Arteta to say to the club: “I may be a rookie coach, but I have a system in mind. If you give me 3 more transfer windows I’ll fill the ranks with Willian-like dross for insane wages on a long contract. We’re getting there, in 2 years I may serve up something that doesn’t make you carve your eyes out, till then enjoy this orgy of incompetence.” When will stupid decisions from him require accountability and taking responsibility?

    Xhaka will never try to challenge his opponents. He’ll never get a ball and try to penetrate the midfield of the opponents. Back pass and side pass are his area of specially

    Xhaka has been with us since 2016, Bellerin since 2013, and that tells you everything you need to know about where our main problems lie.

    Neither of them would last 5 mins at a top club!

      TMJW, you get a lot of unfair stick on JA from non realists for speaking plain truth which self foolers resent, for the simple reason of them being self foolers. I AM A FELLOW REALIST AND APPLAUD YOU SPEAKING PLAIN TRUTH.
