- The midfielder believes he plays a really important role for the team and promises he won't let the Gunners down
- The 25-year-old reveals he feels blessed to be named one of the 5 Emery's captains
Xhaka said on Unai Emery's trust, as quoted by the Evening Standard: "For him, it’s important that I help us build up play from the back, that I play passes between the lines and that I help us to keep our balance between defence and offence.
"In my opinion, I’ve got a big role to play in this team. The new coach has made me one of the five captains, which is a great message from him and from the club that I can undertake responsibility.
"It made me really proud and pleased to be named as one of the captains of such an excellent club. It heightens your motivation."
