Despite being criticised for his combative nature, Xhaka has insisted explicitly that he wont change his style to please Wenger.

The Switzerland midfield enforcer has made a mixed start to his Arsenal career following a £32 million move from Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer.

The 24-year-old has earned plaudits for his no-nonsense approach, while the elegance and range of his passing prompted Wenger to compare him to former Gunners great Emmanuel Petit.

Arsene Wenger, however, expressed concern over his checkered disciplinary record which has seen him sent off eight times for club and country since April 2014.

 

But speaking ahead of Arsenal’s Boxing Day clash with West Brom, Xhaka insisted curbing his aggression on the pitch would take away a significant element of his game.

‘That’s how I play. If you take that away then I wouldn’t be where I am now,’ he told Arsenal.com. ‘So I don;t think the yellow cards or the red cards are too big an issue.’

‘I wouldn’t change myself for anybody. I am who I am, people accept me or they don’t.

‘I have my strengths and weaknesses, which I can try to improve upon of course. I am still only 24 so I’ve got plenty of time to keep improving.’
