Arsenal's midfielder, Granit Xhaka has spoken about his style of play that always gets him into the referee's bad book.
The Swiss player insisted that he was never going to change his harsh way of tackling whenever he is on the football pitch. Xhaka was who speaking with Sky Sports during the weekend said the yellow and red cards he receives is not always planned or intentional.
It's not like, I am planning this. It's not that I am doing this on purpose. But, sometimes I am in a place where I have to take a 50:50. It's risky, of course. Now people will say, Yeah, but why do you always take risks. This is who I am, I can't change myself from today to tomorrow. Of course, I need to improve and I know I need to improve. But at this moment, if Jota takes the ball and he scores, they will say again, Why didn't you stop him? Now I stop him, they say, Why did you get a red card? In the end, after the game, everyone is smarter at the moment, myself as well. Of course when I see it back now and say, Do I need to get into that duel or not? No.
Xhaka has received 63 yellow cards and five red cards since he joined Arsenal.
