Petit lays into Arsenal captain Xhaka: Can anyone tell me his best quality?

The former Gunners midfielder has been left unimpressed from what he has seen from the Switzerland international and can't understand why he's skipper

Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit has criticised Granit Xhaka, insisting that he cannot understand why he has been made captain and that he is not sure what the midfielder does best.

Switzerland international Xhaka has often divided opinion among supporters, with many not convinced that he is good enough to be one of the Gunners' key players.

He was, however, made Arsenal captain after a blind ballot back in September, and Petit claims he does not know why the former Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder was given the armband.
