Twitter reacts to Granit Xhaka losing the Arsenal captaincy


Granit Xhaka has been stripped of the Arsenal captaincy following his spat with Arsenal fans last month.

The Swiss midfielder failed to apologise for his actions on the pitch after Arsenal fans booed him off. Now Xhaka has lost his captaincy and looks set to leave the club in the January transfer window.

The whole incident created a real mix of responses from Arsenal fans and pundits. Some have backed the midfielder after having to endure lots of abuse from Arsenal fans in recent weeks.

Others have no sympathy for a player who disrespected the armband, in their view, by reacting to the fans in the way he did. It’s a topic that has divided opinion, but below we have gathered reaction to how Twitter has reacted to the news of Granit losing the captaincy.
