Xhaka considering Gladbach exit

Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka has refused to commit his future to the club as he seeks to retain his place with the Swiss national team ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

Xhaka, 20, joined Gladbach from Swiss club FC Basel in an €8.5 million deal last summer, signing a contract until 2017, but he has indicated that he is considering this options.

“There are no guarantees in football,” he told Express after the 1-0 defeat to Schalke. “You cannot say if you are here for next season. I will most certainly be here for the next two games, and I’ll take it from there.”

Xhaka, who has won 12 caps for Switzerland, lost his place in the Gladbach team in October and, while he has returned to the first XI in recent weeks, he has so far been limited to 13 Bundesliga starts.

With his country currently on course for a place in Brazil, he wants assurances that he will play regularly for his club next season.

“I must consider a couple of things,” he said. “Of course, I have played a few games now, but when the new season begins and I don’t play, my place in the national team is in danger. I want to make it to the 2014 World Cup with Switzerland, but I need to play in the club if I want to keep my place in the national team.”

In an interview with Aachener Zeitung last week, Xhaka had admitted that he might have put too much pressure on himself.

“I wanted to prove to everyone what I am capable of, that I am not a flop, but then you want too much and in the end nothing works out,” he said, adding that he felt the burden of the €8.5 million transfer fee.

Xhaka, who had made his Basel debut as a 17-year old, found himself whistled by Gladbach fans earlier in the season, but he said he was taking the positives from the experience.

“I knew there would come a day when things would not only be positive for me,” he explained. “I am delighted it happens to me now, in the opening stages of my career.”
