and his family have been facing online abuse and his responses have been causing problems for him, but he has talked about the matter again.

Xhaka said:

“If I showed others what they write, I think I have to close my social media, everyone has to close social media.

“I say that before and I will say that now and in the future as well, it is only about me. I am the guy who is on the pitch. It is not my wife, it is not my little one, it is not my family.

“So if you want to criticize someone, no problem to criticize me like a person, like a player. But don’t make the other people involved because they have nothing to do with my job.

“They are not supporters of my club. I do not see them as supporters of my club – to support the club they have to be here if we lose, we draw or we win.

“Of course, you can criticize and say what you want about football – but not about the person, not about the family. I think this is two pairs of shoes, about the footballer and the person.

“But if one guy is a ticket holder at the club and speaks like this about his own players I don't think he needs respect from our side or other people.”
