Yesterday, Arsenal was up 2-0 on Crystal Palace and somehow blew the lead at home at The Emirates. Fans were obviously not thrilled with the result. And as Aresnal’s captain Granit Xhaka was coming off the field the fans let him now. And in response he let them know how felt as well by basically telling the fans to fuck off.
Granit Xhaka gets jeered off the field in front of the Arsenal home crowd ?

Xhaka threw the armband on the floor, told the fans to “fuck off” for booing him and topped it all off by taking the Arsenal shirt off and dropping it on the ground before cowardly walking down the tunnel
As Thierry Henry once said “if the badge is too heavy, then leave”

Didn't want to post these pictures but felt I had to. This is Lucas Torreira's emotional reaction to the abuse Granit Xhaka received after his substitution, in tears and inconsolable. Absolute love and respect for his captain. pic.twitter.com/ijKOvwkYx2

You kind of have to laugh here. I mean ok cool. The fans have the right to boo the player. And the player has the right to tell the fans to fuck off. But you got to laugh at Luca Torrerira’s emotional reaction. I mean Granit was just coming out of the game. He wasn’t injured. He isn’t leaving. Soccer in Europe is just different but in a way you got to love it.
