Three senior players visit Xhaka at home after meltdown.
The effect of being booed off on Sunday was so bad for Granit Xhaka that three of the club’s senior players visited him at home.
Xhaka has been made the scapegoat for an underperforming and it has begun to get to him.
On Sunday, Arsenal put in another poor performance at home after Crystal Palace came from two goals down.
When the 27-year-old was substituted, he mouthed swear words towards the fans as they booed him off.
Unai Emery has condemned his action and it seems he may be stripped of his captaincy.
Reports from Express Sports claims that three senior players from the club had to visit Xhaka at home to lend their support to him after the abuse.
The visiting player’s identities are unknown but when they say senior players it’s not hard to work out who.
What is clear is that he hasn’t been pulling his weight as the club’s captain and has lost the fans. However, he is not the only player performing well below their best.
Arsenal returns to action midweek when they face Liverpool in the Carabao Cup at Anfield. The fans will be hoping they can beat the Reds with Jurgen Klopp set to ring the changes.
