Was Granit Xhaka right? And what next for him and Arsenal?

Wayne Farry

It has not been a quiet weekend of football

On the latest episode of Liquid Football, Kelly Cates is joined by former Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell, Champions League winner Wes Brown and ex-Portsmouth man Gary O’Neil.

On the agenda first is Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka’s acrimonious exit from Unai Emery’s side’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, which saw him booed and jeered by Gunners fans.

They also discuss what it feels like to respond to fan abuse online, and whether it’s worth their while to do so.

With the recent troubles of Manchester United, the panel talk about the aura surrounding Sir Alex Ferguson’s Red Devils sides, why they were so difficult to mess with psychologically, and a little secret: Fergie didn’t always unleash the hairdryer treatment, despite stories.
