Why Are You Doing That – Henry Slam Granit Xhaka

Published

on

Ex- Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has expressed his dissatisfaction over Granit Xhaka silly tackle, questioning the midfielder’s temperament and footballing mentality.

Granit Xhaka who arrived at Emirates Stadium last summer with a disciplinary record from his time in Germany with Borussia Monchengladbach, the Swiss-born midfielder received another red card. After a moment of consultation with the Lineman, Jon Moss had no choice than to award Xhaka a straight red card in a silly challenge after being dispossessed by Steven Defour, leaving the Gunners to 10man down, paving way for Burnley to take advantage of the situation.

His recklessness with tackles has seen him had three red cards this season in just 30 appearances for both club and country struggling to make the expected impression of him in the EPL, with his good taste of picking red cards continuing to overshadow his abilities.

Arsenal legend was furious on Xhaka sudden recklessness.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Henry said:”It’s not the first time. He did the same thing against Swansea,”

“This one I just don’t get it. Against Swansea, it was a counter. Here, he gives the ball cheaply away.

“Why are you doing that 60 yards away from your goal, 25 minutes to go, you’re in control of the game? You misplace a pass. So what? Stay on your feet.

“As soon as you do that, the rules say it’s a red. Is it worse than [Marcos] Rojo who didn’t get a red? No. But the rule says both feet off the ground, it’s a red.”

However, Wenger didn’t mince words to comment on Xhaka dismission

‘I am a bit concerned, yes, because discipline is important,’ Wenger said Xhaka was dismissed during the 3-2 victory over Swansea.

‘We want to be effective in all situations we face. In a derby, it is important to keep control of your reaction and have a strong discipline because it’s part of the effectiveness in this kind of game.

‘He’s normally a very composed and calm guy. Sometimes on the field, he has the reaction that is a bit impulsive. He knows that.
‘He has to work on that and keep control of his reactions in the game.’
