Man United & Tottenham fans absolutely rip Granit Xhaka over cringey opening remarks as Arsenal player

Granit Xhaka has been at Arsenal for a day and already he is the the target of opposition fans.

To be fair, the Swiss midfielder, who has joined Arsenal for around £30m from Borussia Monchengladbach, has not helped himself with his incredibly cringey opening remarks as a Gooner.

In an attempt to prove that he is a leader – something which title-botting Arsenal are in desperate need of – Xhaka recounted a story from his childhood which most definitely flatters to deceive.

It is hardly William Wallace leading his army into the Battle of Stirling Bridge, and rival fans from Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United quickly poked fun at Xhaka’s so-called leadership.
