Gabriel Jesus sends a message to Granit Xhaka after his Arsenal exit

Gabriel Jesus has conveyed a message to Granit Xhaka following the midfielder’s departure from Arsenal to join Bayer Leverkusen.

Xhaka finalised an agreement to join the German side at the conclusion of the previous season, which marked one of the standout campaigns of his Arsenal career.

While Xhaka had one more season remaining on his contract at the Emirates, he expressed his desire to return to Germany, and Bayer Leverkusen was willing to pay a decent transfer fee to secure his signature.

Arsenal has now bid farewell to one of the most influential figures in their dressing room since Mikel Arteta assumed the role of manager. In light of Xhaka’s departure, Gabriel Jesus has sent him a message, expressing well wishes and acknowledging their time together at Arsenal.

After his departure was confirmed, Gabriel Jesus posted an image of them both on his Instagram story and added:

“What a guy, what a player. I wish you all the best, my brother,”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Xhaka went from being a player we loathed to becoming one most of us admired before he left the club.

He probably made the right decision and we now need to support Declan Rice and Kai Havertz to replace him in our starting XI.

We will always remember Xhaka for the dedication he showed when he wore our shirt and how great he was as a player for the club.

  1. Chaka was a great and highly committed arsenal player . He was a big timber of the team in the last. Few years. I wish him all the best in his future endeavor

  2. Xhaka wasn’t only a good player but a good leader…how I wish he’s 25 or 26years…

  3. I’m sorry, but to say Xhaka was loathed is way over the top and shows just what he had to contend with.

    Of course, as usual, there were those who were relentless in their abuse of the player, only having to admit they were wrong in the end.

    . Just as with any player or manager, we, as fans, have differing views on what they achieve and their value to the club.

    What no one can deny, is the way this MAN carried himself against the kind of abuse that, unfortunately, some of our fans feel they are entitled to give out.

    Gabriel’s message to Xhaka shows just how highly regarded he was and we will miss him, that’s for sure.

    I also have to acknowledge MA’s management, especially when he persuaded Granit to stay, despite the horrific abuse he received from a section of our fan base.

    Hope to see you back at The Emirates one day Granit and good luck.

  4. Xhaka was once chosen to be captain by team members while armchair managers and fans alike crucified him.

    The swiss was not just one of the leaders in the dressing room, he control the dressing room.

    One of the most amazing things about this man of steel, even when the captaincy was remove from him, he remain the unofficial captain until the very last day,

  5. Oh the great Xhaka fare thee well enjoy yourself at a new home will miss the commitment/leadership antics you have showed
