Vega: Xhaka faces make or break season at Arsenal

Former Tottenham defender Ramon Vega believes Granit Xhaka faces a make or break season at Arsenal.

Vega says Xhaka has become a target for the English media.

He told Blick: "English football is pretty tough for foreigners. Xhaka came as a big performer, this generated great pressure in the media, and they are very critical of him.

"But if you are finishing sixth place with Arsenal twice, that's not enough. He has to prove himself now, he has an important season ahead of him."
