Nearly three years to the day after being booed off the field by his own supporters, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has stated that Granit Xhaka deserves to enjoy his comeback at the club.
Arteta added that Xhaka's play has a new element that he's discovered, and it's showing on the field.
The Swiss midfielder scored the only goal for the Gunners as they beat PSV 1-0 in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The victory puts Arteta’s men on the brink of finishing as group B winners.
“I think he has faced adversity, and in difficult moments he has put his arm up when he had something different to do.
“His work ethic, the way he is as a person, the way he treats everybody around the club, and his love for this football club and the profession is unquestionable, and I think he fully deserves that."
“I’m really happy to see him enjoying his career,” Arteta said.
