The interlull is now very well in full swing. Players have gone away to their countries or at home with their countries. However, we are yet taking swipes at our players.
Arsenal new boy Granit Xhaka won the goal of the month for his long-range screamer against Hull City in the Premier League. He has been nicknamed because of his shooting ability and he claims he’s proud of his nickname.
Xhaka got into the game as a second half substitute for Francis Coquelin. We were 3-1 up but he took a long range effort that resulted in a stunning goal.
Speaking to Arsenal Player recently after winning our club’s Goal of the Month award, the 24-year-old was informed of his new nickname and he admitted although he doesn’t 100% get it, he’s proud of it.
We hope to see more of such goals from him.
