“He is the reason” Xhaka shocks everyone with reasons for him not leaving Arsenal despite once having had ‘suitcases ready’

Granit Xhaka surprised everyone when he stated that he will not leave Arsenal because of manager Mikel Arteta.

Xhaka, who is currently in a coaching school, says he has Arteta’s respect and believes his hard work has helped him win over the fans as well.

“He is the reason why I’m still at this football club,” Xhaka said, reaffirming his position from last season.

“All of the club knows why I am still here, because three years ago I was gone. My suitcases were packed and finished, but I had a meeting with Mikel when he came – he wanted to hear my opinion about what had happened and I explained to him.

“I remember it exactly: I told him, ‘It has nothing to do with you’ because I didn’t know him and I never played with him. Obviously I knew his name but not the person and I said, ‘I’m gone, I can’t wear the shirt any more.’

“He said, ‘Give me a chance for six months and if you are still not happy after six months, I’m the guy who will help you – not to run away, but you can leave.’

“I didn’t speak with family, with nobody, and normally I don’t do that. But I said, ‘OK, Mikel – I will stay for you.’ And I’m still here.”
