Arsenal Fans Demand Granit Xhaka To be Stripped Off Captaincy

Arsenal blew a 2 goal lead to draw 2-2 with Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. The match was dominated by VAR incidents all through.

First, VAR awarded a penalty for Palace’s first goal and then deep in the second half, VAR disallowed an Arsenal goal scored by Sokratis for a mysterious Foul by Calum Chambers.

However, there was one moment that sticks to mind and it came from the Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka. The Swiss midfielder was substituted on the hour mark amid boos from a section of Arsenal fans.

With the game tied at 2-2, instead of running off the pitch, Xhaka slowly walked off and the boos from the Emirates Stadium grew stronger. In return, Xhaka waved his hands encouraging the fans to boo even louder and even told them to f#ck off twice!
