Arsenal‘s management has taken a decision to not punish the Club Captain Granit Xhaka following his weekend outburst with fans at the Emirates Stadium.
Xhaka, who was visibly frustrated had a confrontation with supporters shortly after he was substituted in the second half of Arsenal’s clash with Crystal Palace.
The midfielder threw his arms in the air, cupping his ears before mouthing vulgarities as he made for the tunnel. His actions attracted heavy criticism from analysts and fans, with some of them calling for his removal as club captain.
However, Arsenal’s hierarchy have decided that the midfielder will neither be fined nor face any punitive action.
SunSport reports the north London club fear Xhaka is currently mentally friable and also posit the player has already punished himself since he regrets the incident.
In the meantime, the 27-year-old is yet to issue any apology to fans, despite Unai Emery pressing him to.
Xhaka was not part of the North London’s side that faced Liverpool in a 10 goal thriller that ended with Arsenal being edged out of the EPLcup in penalties.
