” From the first to the last minute, we didn’t even deserve to be on the pitch! » Granit Xhaka, the Swiss international midfielder for Arsenal, did not mince his words after the defeat, it is true quite unworthy in the content, of his team in Newcastle (0-2). This setback offers almost on a plate the last qualifying ticket for the Champions League in the Premier League to the hated rival of Tottenham.
” I can’t explain why. We did not respect the plan put in place at all, we did not listen to the coach (Mikel Arteta). We delivered a disastrous performance. We don’t deserve a player in the Champions League, or even the Europa League. It’s very hard to accept. If a player wasn’t ready for that game, he just had to stay home. It’s not a question of age. If you’re too nervous, stay on the bench or at home! We need players who have the skills to play! It was one of our most important matches. We are extremely disappointed for our supporters. »
