London, Aug 29: Arsel midfielder Granit Xhaka said he could not go out of his house here after his team’s embarrassing 0-4 defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday.
“I’m not going out after a 4-0 loss against Liverpool,” Xhaka was quoted as saying by ESPNFC.
“It’s a shame we did not qualify for the Champions League. That’s definitely a downside, but we’ve won the cup and that’s a dream come true for me,” he said.
Granit Xhaka was voted Switzerland’s Player of the Year by fans at home.
“I am very proud (of the award). I had to work hard for it, but I would have never achieved it without the lads and the (tiol team) staff,” Xhaka said.
“I am still young, I am still fresh and I want more. I want to work even harder than before and then we’ll see what the future holds in store for me.”
Xhaka was handed the award at a Swiss Football Association ceremony on Monday night. He starred for Switzerland at last summer’s Euro 2016. IANS
