Report – Walcott claims Arsenal players are telling Xhaka not to shootChampions League, Round-Up September 30, 2016
We grabbed our first Champions League win on Wednesday night, running out 2-0 winners against Basel, both goals scored by a resurgent Man of the Match, Theo Walcott.
This latest report from BT Sport now claims the England international jokes that Arsenal players are telling Swiss international midfielder Granit Xhaka to stop shooting every time he gets the ball.
Xhaka has scored two absolute screamers this season and every time he gets the ball, a cry of ‘shooooot’ goes up in the crowd.
It’s widely believed that most Arsenal players have been told to actually shoot less, according to Egyptian playmaker Mo Elneny according to this report from ESPN.
With the two goals that Xhaka have scored, I personally think the players should be encouraged to shoot more not less, but as always with these things, ‘Arsene knows’.
Arsene Wenger celebrates his 20th year in charge this week as we prepare to face Burnley away this coming Sunday, live on Sky Sports, kicking off at 16:30 VAT (Vic Akers Time).
