Arsene Wenger has warned Granit Xhaka that he has to be very careful from next time. The midfielder was sent off after a very harsh tackle on Swansea player Modou Barrow.
The Swiss international has a habit of making rough tackles and for this reason his disciplinary record has been questionable throughout. When he was in Borussia Monchengladbach he got the marching order from referee five times.
According to the French man it was not a red card offence. “It looked harsh to me. But it was a deliberate foul. It looked a dark yellow – and the referee went for a bright red, I think intelligence means you don’t make the same mistake twice, and I hope he learns from that.”
“Before, in Germany, he had some [red cards] but I don’t think he’s a dirty player at all. Sometimes there have been some clumsy tackles because he’s not a natural defender, he’s a guy who likes to play forward. I will speak to him. I think Barrow made a lot of it as well, because he could go on. But the referee saw a bad tackle and you have to respect that. It is what it is, and he has to learn from it.” He further added.
