Xhaka celebration


Part of the Furniture

A bit crazy, isn’t it? Looks like he even fooled his own manager, who was already probably thinking who will replace him. Given that footballers are a highly superstitious bunch, it’s really unusual to fake an injury as part of a goal celebration… but actually he wasn’t the first:

Nairobi Sharks midfielder Sven Yidah did this after scoring a penalty against Everton, of all teams, in a pre-season game in 2019 (scored against Lossl, not Pickford, in case you’re wondering). Apparently that celebration is his trademark too - I saw other videos of him doing it.

Anyway - does anyone have a problem with what Xhaka did and if more players start copying it?

He should've went down in pain to fool his team mates as well, looked like they were all in on it.
