Granit Xhaka says he is settling quickly at Arsenal because he “fits to the club”.
The midfielder impressed in his first Gunners appearance against the MLS All-Stars on Friday, playing 45 minutes and recording a pass completion rate of 94.2 per cent in Arsenal’s 2-1 win.
“It’s a really nice feeling to play for such a great and big club for the first time,” Granit said after the match. “I really enjoyed it and I think it showed on the pitch that I’ve been welcomed really well, that I have the trust of my team-mates. I’m really pleased to have finally played my first game.
“This club fits to me and I fit to it. Arsenal play attractive football and I enjoy that. I think you could see today that this team has a lot of quality and we’ll give our all to show that on the pitch.
“We will give our all to win something. I’ve already noticed how high the expectation levels are at this club. You realise that quickly. But we’ll go from game to game and will make sure that we’re well prepared for every game.”
