Frustrated Arsenal fans could not seem to muster up much enthusiasm for the club’s announcement that midfielder Granit Xhaka had been confirmed as the Credit Suisse Player of the Year.

The results of a public vote to decide the best player involved with the Swiss national team were announced at an awards ceremony in the country on Monday.

But after a disappointing 4-0 defeat at Liverpool over the weekend, the club’s supporters were in no mood to celebrate.

These were the best jokes and replies to Arsenal’s tweet announcing Granit Xhaka as Switzerland’s footballer of the year:

Narrowly beating Toble Rone to the award 🇨🇭
