Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer admits the sale of Granit Xhaka to Arsenal is a huge loss for the Bundesliga club.
“His departure is a huge loss for us because Xhaka is not just very important as a player, but also as a person,” Sommer told sport1.de. “You can see that he is the one pulling the strings in midfield and our game would often run through him.
“He was the one creating our game and it’s always hard when you lose such an important personality. Now we’ve got to find a new playmaker, but I’m sure Borussia will do a good job and soon present our new Granit Xhaka.”
