Xhaka comments on criticism
Granit Xhaka has opened up on recent criticism of him following his red card against Liverpool last week.
The Swiss was sent off fifth for beating Diogo Jota and preventing a clear scoring opportunity
But Xhaka has fought back against critics, telling Sky Sports: “Why didn’t you stop him?” Now I stop him, they’re like, ‘Why are you getting the red card?’”
“In the end, everyone is smarter after the game than they are right now – including me. Of course, if I look back now and say: ‘Do I have to go into the duel or not?’ No.
“But it’s a moment, a second, where I have to make a decision and this time I made the wrong one and I feel sorry for the team, I feel sorry for the fans but thank God they have a great job after that did .”
