Arsenal fans have been going ballistic after it was revealed that the club’s attempts to get Granit Xhaka to apologise to the fans is going wayward.
Should Xhaka ever play for Arsenal again?
According to The Sun, Unai Emery spoke to the Switzerland international on the phone and attempts to persuade him to apologise to the Arsenal fans have come to nothing.
It was also revealed in the same report that the Basque-born manager fears a dressing room revolt if he takes the captaincy away from the popular Xhaka.
It was widely reported back in September that the Arsenal players were unanimous in their voting of the 27-year-old as the club’s captain (via Evening Standard).
Amid the scandal surrounding Xhaka, the north London club face Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers in a daunting run of games.
Fans seemed aghast at the news that Xhaka is seemingly ‘refusing’ to apologise for his actions against Crystal Palace.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
The fans will riot if he doesn’t lol

His teammates should tell him what’s right and have him write an apology. He NEEDS to do that. Then tell everyone he’s not willing to continue as captain. Because now, the fans won’t have him.

So the “captain” is now refusing to listen to the Head Coach? You cannot write the script anymore.
