Granit Xhaka stripped off Arsenal Captaincy


Arsenal manager Unai Emery on Tuesday confirmed that Granit Xhaka has been stripped of the club captaincy after his reaction to the fans during a match.

Xhaka swore at the fans and threw the captain’s armband to the floor after being booed as he was substituted against Crystal Palace 10 days ago.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who led Arsenal for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Wolves, will take over as captain.

Xhaka was not included in the squad for the Wolves match or Wednesday’s visit to Vitoria Guimaraes in the Europa League.
