Unai Emery said that Granit Xhaka wants to return to the club after following out with supporters last month.

“He is coming back better in his mind. His mindset is better to help us and to be closer to playing when we need him. I spoke to him this morning and we had a very good conversation. He trained very well before the international break and he trained very well this morning. My objective is going to be [to use] his comeback to help us, and to convince every supporter of his commitment with us and [that] his performances will be better, and they will be proud of him in the long or short future with us,” said Emery.

Emery reiterated that Xhaka was committed to the club.
