Emmanuel Petit cannot figure out why Granit Xhaka is Arsenal skipper

Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit cannot figure out why Granit Xhaka is captain of the Gunners.  

Arsenal manager Unai Emery and his side were criticised following their 1-0 defeat by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Monday night.

And now Petit has condemned skipper Xhaka and believes he should not be wearing the captain’s armband.

‘Can you imagine Patrick Vieira on the pitch on Monday night? He would have been shouting at his team-mates, asking them: “What the f*** are you doing?” He told Paddy Power, as reported by Goal

‘I don’t see that with Xhaka. I do with Guendouzi – he’s one of the few who shows he wants to win every game. He’s got a lion’s heart.

‘Can anyone tell me what is Xhaka’s best quality? I don’t know why he has been made captain. The leadership is absent.’

Emery confirmed Xhaka was the club’s new skipper last month after the Switzerland international won a blind vote among players.
