Granit Xhaka: Why my brother and I give 80% of our pay packets to our parents


Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka says he wouldn't be a professional footballer had his parents not supported him when he was young.

The 23-year-old revealed that together with brother Taulant he gives an important part of his income to his parents.

He became Arsenal's first summer signing after joining for a reported £35million on a long-term contract.

He will fill the void left by released midfielders Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini.

"Because we owe our parents everything, we want to give them something back today," Xhaka is quoted in Spox.

"And we give, each month our income from [football], of course we have a separate account, but 80 percent of our income we send home.

"We are young, we are naive with money, money can go fast again.

"If anyone thinks he is something better, just because he has more money in his account… then he can very quickly fall on his face. The family is our greatest luxury."
