2pm Arsenal news LIVE: Liverpool build up, Torreira ‘reduced to tears’ by Xhaka boos, Emery could make Ozil captain

GARY NEVILLE has urged Granit Xhaka to learn from his mistakes after the Arsenal captain told fans to “f*** off” as they booed him while he was substituted against Crystal Palace.

He told Sky Sports News: “I struggle with Xhaka full stop, I’ll be honest with you. I just think it’s his ill-discipline in his performances generally over a period of the last two or three years.

“I’ve never watched a player who seems to learn less from his experiences than Xhaka.

“He makes what must be four hundred mistimed tackles a match. He essentially gets booked every time I watch him, I don’t watch him every single game but every game I do watch he gets booked.

“He doesn’t seem to set the tone for the rest of his team-mates with his performance levels. So, what happened on Sunday doesn’t surprise me.”

“He does give his all, he’s committed. There’s no doubt about that. You can see someone there.

“But he’s the least experienced experienced player I’ve ever watched. He’s rash.

“I’ve got no problem with this idea of taking on your fans or a bit of tension. It’s never great, it’s not healthy. But actually, in football, that can happen.

“I have a bigger problem, watching him, with his performance levels, the way he doesn’t perform and doesn’t carry his team on the pitch.”
