Unai Emery and Granit Xhaka set for talks following meltdown.
The reactions of Granit Xhaka towards Arsenal fans after he was substituted at the weekend has continued to generate problems for the Swiss midfielder.
Xhaka cupped his ears and said some expletives towards the fans at the Emirates on Sunday. That could be the point where his career with Arsenal hits a brick wall.
Unai Emery admitted that the midfielder was wrong and seems to have taken sides with the club’s supporters.
Reports in the media claim that the club is set to hold showdown talks with the midfielder over his future after his latest episode.
Xhaka is surprisingly popular among his teammates and remains one of the most respected players in the club’s dressing room. He was chosen by his teammates to be captain earlier in the season to the surprise of fans.
It is unclear at the moment if the club will succumb to pressure and take the captain’s armband away from him.
One thing that is clear is that his teammates are in support of him, Hector Bellerin tweeted after the game.
“To be united is the start; to keep united is a progress; but to work together and united, will lead us to success. Let’s go boys! Together we can make it!”
