Granit Xhaka has admitted he doesn’t speak Italian but there are many good schools in Rome where he can learn before adding he’s an Arsenal player in the world’s worst ‘no comment’ interview.
Earlier this week, Granit Xhaka all but confirmed he would be off to Roma as soon as Switzerland were eliminated from the Euros when he said “Arsenal know what I want to do”.
Following their surprise defeat of France, we will have to wait a little longer for this saga to draw to a conclusion but, as it stands, there is only one place Xhaka will be going this summer – Rome.
Now, most players when they are on the move, but the deal hasn’t been completed, usually just say nothing. Not Xhaka.
Asked by the press if he speaks Italian, his response perhaps gave away far more than he meant it to. After all, Xhaka isn’t the brightest spark, as we know.
“If I speak Italian?” the midfielder repeated back to the reporter. “Not yet … In Rome there are many good schools where you can learn the language. I learned English, I can also learn Italian, it’s always important to know foreign languages. Now I’m an Arsenal player, everyone knows what Roma represent. Let’s see.”
