Arsenal FC reaction: ‘Reckless’ Granit Xhaka ‘should get fined two weeks’ wages’ for sending off v Swansea City
Arsenal fans have blasted Granit Xhaka for nearly costing them victory v Swansea.
The Swiss midfielder is renown for his hard work, but he also made a name for himself as a frequent recipent of red cards during his time in Germany.
The summer signing from Borussia Monchengladbach had become popular with fans after scoring long-range stunners against Hull and Nottingham Forest earlier in the season.
But he did not do himself any favours after being shown a straight red in talkSPORT2’s live commentary game.
The 24-year-old hacked down Modou Barrow inside the Arsenal half with 20 minutes left on the clock and Jon Moss gave him his marching orders at the Emirates.
Arsenal held on to still win 3-2 but it was not easy and Gunners fans were not pleased with their midfielder, who faces a suspension.
