Arsenal captain paid for provoking football fans

Granit Xhaka must meet with the coaching staff and Technical Director of Arsenal in order to explain the provocation of supporters in the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace on October 27.

Many Arsenal fans were booed in the stands after Xhaka was substituted in the 61st minute in a draw against Crystal Palace. In response to the criticism, the 27-year-old midfielder covered his ears, shouted, took off his shirt and threw the captain’s hat to the ground before heading straight into the tunnel.

“We will have an internal meeting about this situation. I want to listen to Xhaka when he calms down. But, he was actually wrong to do that action,” coach Unai Emery shared at the meeting. post-match report.

According to Goal, the Spanish strategist and Technical Director Edu had harsh conversations with Xhaka after the player’s ugly actions. Arsenal say they cannot let a person do that to the captain’s armband.

Many former “Gunners” also expressed disgust at the actions of the younger. “Fans are impatient with what Xhaka showed on the pitch. He owes them more than that,” Ian Wright said.

Meanwhile, Nigel Winterburn harshly commented: “It is surprising that this is an action coming from the Arsenal captain. I think Emery needs to remove Xhaka from the squad and take the captain’s armband immediately. up to 5 captains and can easily do that. Also, I don’t like the choice of captain. The coach should be the one to decide this.”

It was the election which proved that Xhaka was an influential person in Arsenal’s dressing room. Daily Mail recently revealed that Emery will let the players decide the fate of the Swiss midfielder, because he feared that the captain’s deprivation would create a negative reaction within the team.

However, the former captain of PSG is also receiving much criticism from the fans when isolating Mesut Ozil and giving the opportunity to Xhaka. The Emirates Stadium team is currently ranked 5th in the Premier League table, but the performance they bring is not really convincing.

Arsenal captain cursed fans on the way out

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka was unable to keep his cool when he was booed by Arsenal fans on the pitch in the 61st minute of a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on October 27.

When the score was 2-2, coach Unai Emery replaced Xhaka with young talent Bukayo Saka – who tends to attack more. Arsenal captain is not happy with this decision.

Xhaka’s exasperation escalated when he was booed by his home fans on his way out of the yard. Xhaka swore at it “bastard” and made an act of raising his hand to his ear to tease the fans. The Swiss midfielder then took off his Arsenal shirt and went straight into the Emirates tunnel, instead of sitting with the substitutes.

Xhaka was elected Arsenal captain in late September, replacing Laurent Koscielny – who moved to Bordeaux in the summer. Right from that time, Arsenal fans opposed Mr. Emery’s decision because the 27-year-old midfielder often made mistakes.

“I don’t see the leadership qualities at Xhaka,” former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit told Goal. “I saw that at Guendouzi. He was one of the few players who showed that he wanted to win every match.”

Xhaka and Emery were both chilled by the “Gunners” fans, following Arsenal’s disappointing performance in the last three matches. They lost to Sheffield United, beat Guimaraes thanks to two Pepe penalties at the end of the match, and then lost points to Crystal Palace in the 10th round of the Premier League on October 27.

In the match against Crystal Palace, Arsenal led 2-0 after just nine minutes thanks to Sokratis and David Luiz. But the host to rival the city equalized 2-2 after the mistakes of the defense. The draw was arguably unlucky for Arsenal, when VAR twice made a decision that was detrimental to them. Arsenal also missed many clear opportunities in the match they launched up to 14 finishes.
