Speaking in the clip above, Xhaka simply insists those sending the messages need to keep his family out of it, even if he has no problem with anything they might say about him as a player or a person.
It would be nice to see this culture of online abuse end, but Xhaka makes a fair point – if you really feel the urge to tell a player how badly he’s performing, leave it at that rather than bringing their families into it.
