Granit Xhaka gets after his outburst on the last weekend in the match against Crystal Palace back from Man-City-Coach Pep Guardiola. "I understand Xhaka, that you can be in certain moments, emotionally. Sometimes you lose control," said the Spaniard at the press conference before the match of his team against Southampton.
The Swiss midfielder was the 2:2 against Crystal Palace in the 61. Minute after a mixed performance replaced and booed by the audience. Xhaka screamed grandstand several times to "fuck off" direction and asked the Fans to whistle. Then he disappeared in the cabin.
In the days that followed, the Basel for his behavior was not only criticised on social media by his own Fans, but also publicly by his coach, Unai Emery, said: "This was a mistake by him." Emery Xhaka mark also out of the squad for the game this weekend against Wolverhampton.
But City Manager Guardiola finds that the reaction Xhakas was only human: "We have to respect our Fans. Maybe I'm not the right for these words, because I can't control myself sometimes."
And Guardiola said: "I am sure that all of the players, Xhaka included, to give everything for Arsenal. The whole thing will soon be forgotten, and Xhaka is coming back and show what an incredible player he is."
