Granit Xhaka is basically a magician and this video proves it.
The former Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder has been nothing short of miraculous since signing for Arsenal before the Euros. Okay, ‘miraculous’ might be an overstatement since he’s been playing for us for a little while but you get what I mean. He’s good.
The man loves a long ball, which is something we’ve enjoyed (and will continue to enjoy) joking about here at Daily Cannon. Wenger loves Xhaka’s balls, we love Xhaka’s balls. Everyone loves Xhaka’s balls.
I’m struggling to remember a player in recent years who could switch the ball across the pitch so perfectly. He makes it look so effortless and he manages to not go charging up the pitch all the time when he could be defending (coughFlaminicough). Refreshing.
Anyway, enough about Xhaka’s balls, check out this video.
