Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that Granit Xhaka’s “mindset is better” and will “decide tomorrow” if he will play against Southampton on Saturday.

Emery has consistently backed the Arsenal midfielder after he was stripped of the captaincy after his reaction to his own fans boos.

And the Gunners boss has revealed that Xhaka needs “confidence and comfort” after holding clear the air talks with the Swiss international.



“He’s coming back better. His mindset is better and this morning I have a very good conversation with him,” Emery said.

“My objective is for him to come back helping us and convincing everyone that he is going to be better in the short or long future with us.

“He’s feeling better and his team is Arsenal now. He wants to come back with the confidence of the supporters.

“We are going to decide tomorrow (if he plays) but I want to give him confidence and comfort.”
