Many Arsenal fans have responded positively to the reported news that midfielder Granit Xhaka will take a break from football.
According to Swiss outlet Blick, Xhaka is expected to take some time out of football as the birth of his first child is expected soon.
Despite plenty of Arsenal fans reacting positively to this news, there is no doubt that the Swiss midfielder is a really important player for the Gunners. The 26-year-old has been a regular for the club since joining from Borussia Monchengladbach and has played every league game for Arsenal this season bar one – and is also regularly captain for the side.
He has been away on international duty over the past week, playing in Switzerland’s 1-1 draw against the Republic of Ireland.
Lots of Arsenal fans got behind the potential break for Xhaka, with many joking that he should take as long as he feels like for his break.
Here are some of the best responses below…

I wish his wife safe delivery. He should stay longer with his family. They need him than we need him at the moment. Thank you.
