Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka admits he’s been carrying an Achilles injury.
Xhaka has revealed that he has started the season playing through an Achilles injury, as the Swiss captain took part in his country’s 4-0 win over Gibraltar.
Speaking after Sunday’s win, in which he was withdrawn after 74 minutes, he said: “I’ve been suffering from Achilles tendon pain for a few weeks now.
“I felt it during the game.
“It hurts now, but it should be okay otherwise.”
