Wenger has only spoken to me ‘two or three times’ - Arsenal midfielder Xhaka

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has revealed that Arsene Wenger is not a big talker.

The 23-year-old Gunners summer signing admits he has spoken with the Frenchman on less than a handful occasions since arriving from Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer.

Xhaka told Appenzeller Zeitung: "Wenger is not a coach who speaks daily.

"Wenger talked to me two or three times. He told me he was very impressed with how I train, how I behave in my character as I was disciplined."

Xhaka has made three Premier League appearances for the North Londoners so far this season, with his best performance coming in the weekend's 3-1 victory over Watford.
