“If someone isn’t ready for this game, stay at home. It doesn’t matter your age.,” Xhaka lamented. “If you’re nervous, stay on the bench or stay at home. You need people to have the balls to come here and play. It’s one of the most important games for us. We’re feeling very disappointed for the people who came over here.
“Sorry to them [fans], I don’t have any other words. The dressing room is very quiet. The game plan was totally different to what we did over 90 minutes. We are waiting for six years. We had everything in our hands. We looked like we were in the position where Newcastle are, and they were where we are.”
