Piers Morgan absolutely destroys Arsenal 24-year-old after display v Liverpool
By Harvey Byrne
Piers Morgan has slammed summer signing Granit Xhaka as a “gutless waste of money” following Saturday evening’s defeat against Liverpool.
The 24-year-old midfielder played the whole 90 minutes at Anfield, but he was powerless to prvent the Gunners from falling to a 3-1 loss.
A large number of the north London side’s players came in for criticism and Morgan, who is never one to hold back with his words single out Xhaka for his wrath.
The Celebrity Arsenal fan called the Switzerland international a disgrace on his personal Twitter account after the match before also labelling him a waste of money.
Xhaka was a disgrace there.
Gutless waste of money. #afc

Xhaka was signed from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach for a huge £30million.

Many of the Arsenal faithful were hoping he may be the player to finally add some steel to their team and plug the hole in the defensive midfield position which has been left empty since Gilberto Silva left the club.
However, in his first 30 appearances for the club he has received two red cards and six yellows and his poor discipline has been one of the main criticisms fired at him.
Arsenal have now dropped down to fifth following the defeat against Liverpool and this could be the season which sees the Gunners finally drop out of the top four.
