Granit Xhaka believes he was ‘brutally surprised’ to be sent off for flying, two-footed, off the ground into a tackle against Manchester City.
If you had ever wondered how stupid Granit Xhaka really is, then his red card at the Etihad summed it up. The longer this goes one, the more I think the keys Xhaka’s mum gave him were plastic and meant to help him feel better about himself rather than convey any sort of trust in him ahead of his older brother.
Anyway, he doesn’t think it was a red car. He’s wrong. It absolutely was.

“After such a false start, you get criticised. That’s normal and part of it. Every player has to accept that,” he told Keystone – SDA, via Bluewin.
“About the red card: brutally surprising! In connection with the Premier League, people often talk about English toughness.
“I hit the ball 100 per cent and got a red. The pictures were not checked by the VAR. I’ve seen tougher tackles that weren’t even assessed as a foul.
“Am I prejudiced against? I don’t know – I don’t want to judge. I’m not going to let it drive me crazy. I can’t undo anything anyway. All I can do is look ahead.”
