ENGLAND – Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has hinted Granit Xhaka could lose the the captaincy, after his shocking meltdown during the draw with Crystal Palace.

Xhaka, who was appointed Gunners captain at the end of last month, clashed with home supporters after being booed off at the Emirates on Sunday.

The Switzerland midfielder cupped his ears and then was heard saying “f**k off”, before leaving the pitch.

Xhaka then removed his shirt after his substitution and stormed down the tunnel.

“He was wrong. We are going to speak to him and decide with the club.

“We are here because we have supporters. We work for them and need to have respect for them when they are applauding us and criticising us,” Emery told reporters at the Emirates.
