Xhaka speaks out on criticism
Granit Xhaka has spoken out on the recent criticism of him after his red card against Liverpool last week.
The Swiss picked up his fifth sending off for taking down Diogo Jota and and preventing a clear goalscoring opportunity
But fighting back at critics, Xhaka told Sky Sports: “Why didn’t you stop him?’ Now, I stop him, they say, ‘Why do you get the red card?’”
“In the end, after the game, everyone is smarter than in the moment – myself as well. Of course, when I see it back now and say, ‘Do I need to go into the duel or not?’ No.
“But it is a moment, a second, where I have to make a decision and this time I made the wrong one and I feel sorry for the team, I feel sorry for the supporters, but thanks God they did an amazing job after that.”
