Xhaka: Win over Man Utd was best of my career

New Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has revealed the greatest win of his career - Basel's 2-1 Champions League victory over Manchester United in 2011.

Xhaka, who represented his hometown club Basel before moving to Borussia Monchengladbach in 2012, was part of the side that drew 3-3 with the Red Devils at Old Trafford, before managing to win the return fixture in Switzerland.

United exited the competition as Basel headed through to the last-16 and the recent Gunners signing, who is representing Switzerland at Euro 2016, still has fond memories of the tie.

“I think [the best moment of my career] was a game against Manchester United for Basel,” he told Arsenal's official website. 

“We played in Manchester and drew 3-3, then we played at home and won 2-1 to knock them out and progress to the next round.

“It was big. Basel were a smaller club than Manchester United and to beat them 2-1 was a very nice moment.”
