During Granit Xhaka’s ‘Twitter takeover’ the midfielder revealed just how proud he is to play for a club like Arsenal.

The Switzerland international who came to north London in June was asked about how proud he was to play for the club, to which he replied that he was very happy to be ‘here’. When asked what his favourite thing about London was, he replied that he doesn’t know, he just enjoys it here.

So, I guess we can assume he’s happy to be with us.

Of course, I do realise that this is mainly down to Arsenal’s PR team trying to drum up support and ingratiate the relatively new signing with the fans. However, it’s still nice to hear.

On top of this, we also know that it only takes Xhaka ‘two or three minutes’ to do his hair, he only picked the number 29 because it was his shirt number at Basel, and Patrick Vieira inspires him.

Well, there you go.
