Arsenal skipper fires back after former PL foe brutally called Gunners a bunch of mentally weak ‘babies’
Meanwhile, Arsenal captain, Granit Xhaka has hit back at Arsenal’s critics, including Patrice Evra, dismissing suggestions the Gunners are mentally weak away from home as “bulls**t”.
Unai Emery’s side missed the chance to go third in the Premier League table on Tuesday when they were beaten 1-0 by Sheffield United.
The performance prompted familiar criticism of Arsenal’s mentality, with former Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra describing the Gunners as “babies” on Monday Night Football.
“I used to call them ‘my babies’ 10 years ago, and they are still, when I look at them and think they are ‘my babies’… that’s the truth – I’m not being disrespectful when I say that,” Evra said.
“They look pretty, but they don’t look like a winning team. They like playing good football, but I was so happy to play against them, because I knew I was going to win.
“Even when Robin van Persie came (to Manchester United), and on the first day I shook his hand, and I said, ‘welcome to a man’s club’. At the beginning, he was upset, but after one month he said, ‘you were completely right, Patrice’.
“I just don’t see any leadership. I don’t see any character or any personality. They look weak mentally.”
Xhaka said after the game: “We have to stop about mental [strength] bulls*** like this. For me, it is the same whether you play home or away – you have to win and show big character and a good game and not to always find the same excuse.”
Addressing Evra’s comments, he added: “A lot of people they speak too much. It is not the first time he has spoken something about us.
“I have a lot of respect for him as he was a great player but you have to be careful what you say. But it is not only him – a lot of people speak a lot of bulls*** about us. It’s always the same.
“For me it is strange as they were in the same situation as us, they were players as well. Sometimes it is good and sometimes it is not always good but every week they speak bulls*** like this every week.
“I tell you the honest truth, I’m not interested in what people say and speak. We have to speak in our group to improve things and work hard and not listen to these people.”
