Arsenal fans have been blasting Patrick Vieira after he made comments on Granit Xhaka’s situation at the club.
Vieira said that he felt sorry for the midfielder, who had the captaincy stripped from him, and also went on to lavish him with praise, saying he knows how ‘good he is’ (via Sky Sports).
The 27-year-old had the captaincy removed from his last week after he goaded the Emirates Stadium faithful following his substitution against Crystal Palace.
He suffers a horrible relationship with fans for his error-prone nature, according to this one fan.
“Went through alot”?????? His misery started when he started giving goals away,and continues to do so. Just not good enough and should really grow a pair

Towards the end of last season, the Switzerland international gave away a penalty in the home game against Brighton and Hove Albion with the fixture ending 1-1. A win would’ve seen the Gunners qualify for the Champions League as they finished just one point behind rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Fans were disagreeing with their club legend as they took to Twitter to blast him for his comments on Xhaka.
Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:
Like he said, he hasn’t been watching and arsenal match. So he doesn’t know the current state of the club

Patrick be sounding like a clown too. That fraud called Emery caused all this. It’s normal for a tactic or plan not to work. But Emery is too self centred, stubborn and egocentric to see his tactics are not working and seek to adjust. He doesn’t deserve respect for that.

Patrick really can’t see the toxic environment that exist right now at Arsenal from France. He should concentrate on his team in France which is not doing so well.

His most recent talk said he hasn’t even watched our games so its nonsense

He deserves respect as a human. As a player he does not deserve to be continuously picked by Emery to play for AFC. He simply is not the required standard for our club. It is ultimately Emery’s fault.
