Granit Xhaka not wasting time after Switzerland World Cup exit

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka will fly straight to Dubai to join the Gunners at their training camp after Switzerland’s exit from the World Cup yesterday.

The midfielder captained his country to a disastrous 6-1 loss to Portugal in the round of 16 last night and they have packed their bags to leave Qatar.

Instead of heading to London to spend some time with his family, a report on The Sun reveals Xhaka is catching a flight straight to Dubai where Arsenal is already training.

The Gunners hope to remain in shape for the restart of football after Christmas. They know it will be tough for them to maintain their five points lead at the top of the league table and will look to get started with a win.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Xhaka is one of the leaders at Arsenal and he is setting an example for others to follow yet again.

The midfielder has been in superb form this season and fans have fallen in love with him again after his recent change of attitude and performance.

We hope he will continue delivering on the return of football and put the hurt of his country’s World Cup exit behind him.

  1. His “recent change of attiude”?

    I have no idea what that means. I have only seen him give his best for the club, even if at times his best was… subject to criticism.

    And I chose the words carefully to avoid making any comment on whether the criticism was deserved – or always deserved.

  2. Fair play to Xhaka, some would have taken the break away but he has decided to join the team. Say what you will, but that shows a mentality that not every player has.

  3. Am struggling to understand what the writer meant by Xhaka change of attitude.

    Xhaka is a very consistent hot blooded selfless team leader.

    He knows nothing but to give his all.

  4. I endorse the above posts that query that weird phrase, “change of attitude”!


    Xhaka has always been a warrior since the moment he arrived and also a hothead. I see no change in either.

    His recent far less costly and far fewer mistakes are due entirely to his further upfield position and to that alone, IMO!

    And NOT to any change of attitude, as there has been NO CHANGE.

  5. Arteta did say pre tournament that they will judge each player returning from World Cup duty on an individual basis. Credit to Xhaka though for going straight to camp on the back of a disappointing exit with Switzerland.
