Granit Xhaka isn’t the most popular man in north London right now.
Despite being named Arsenal captain last week, the Swiss midfielder did little to endear himself to Gunners fans when he appeared to duck under Scott McTominay’s strike during the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
On Twitter, journalist, TV presenter and famous Arsenal fan Piers Morgan blasted: “Xhaka was so bloody lazy for that goal.
“Just stood there dawdling throughout the whole passage of play – no pressure, no urgency, no leadership.
“He’s not a captain. From Adams & Vieira to this – horrible.”
He then followed up by posting a picture of Xhaka’s ‘duck’ with the sarcastic caption: “Our captain.”
And now, Richard the Arsenal fan has chimed in, echoing Morgan’s thoughts on talkSPORT in a hilarious rant.
“Whoever named him Granit didn’t know what they were doing,” he told the Sports Bar.
“He’s a pantomime horse. Why have they made him club captain? He [Emery] got applauded last week at the Emirates when he took him off.
“He is our Achilles heel. Xhaka was like [Per] Mertesacker. He ducked and he’s been a lot of what’s been going wrong at Arsenal when we’ve been average.”
