Ex-Gunner Hartson urges Xhaka to stop 'throwing toys out of the pram'
- Xhaka is the most disliked character at Arsenal at the moment.
- Swiss international risks leaving the club altogether after his Crystal Palace antics.
- Ex-Arsenal striker John Hartson believes there's still a way back.
- Being humble and professional will win Granit a starting spot back.
The ex-Arsenal striker turned pundit John Hartson believes Granit Xhaka could still win the doubting hearts back if he steps up his performances on the pitch.
"You win the fans back by being humble, being professional and putting in wonderful performances," Hartson said at KP Nuts comedy gig. "He's a good player, he's been playing for Arsenal for a number of years, and now he has got to take on a strong mentality to rise to the occasion.
"Sometimes you have to find inner strength, deal with what you've done, don't sulk and move on rather than throwing your toys out of the pram.
"Yes, he will get a tough time from supporters initially, but this is where he's got to go and show the character that got him the captaincy in the first place.
"Arsenal is never about one person or one manager. The club will be there in a hundred years, it is bigger than one player."
As a reminder, Xhaka came under a shower of criticism during the Crystal Palace clash. The crowd at the Emirates were clearly unhappy with Xhaka's performances and our ex-captain told them to 'f*** off' in response.
