Granit Xhaka Removes Arsenal Instagram Profile Picture After Controversy With Fans

Granit Xhaka has changed his Instagram profile picture which had him in an Arsenal shirt following Sunday's controversial outburst.

The Arsenal captain was booed off the pitch during Sunday's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace and his outburst which included telling fans to 'f**k off' didn't go down well with Emirates supporters.

He has now changed his Instagram profile picture to him in a Switzerland shirt rather than an Arsenal shirt.

News was broken this morning that the midfielder was refusing to apologise to Arsenal fans after his antics on Sunday.

Per The Mirror, manager Unai Emery spoke to the press on Tuesday ahead of the Gunners' Carabao Cup tie against Liverpool tomorrow.

Emery refused to confirm if Xhaka was to be stripped of the captaincy but he did reiterate that he's recommended the 27-year-old apologise.

He's also confirmed that the midfielder will play no part in tomorrow's tie with the league leaders.

Emery's stance lines up with the one he took following the Palace game, refusing to defend Xhaka for his actions.

"He was wrong, He was wrong," Emery said when asked following the game.

"Now we need to stay calm and speak with him, to speak inside about that reaction. His reaction was wrong in that moment.

"We are here because we have supporters. We are the workers inside, but we play for them. We need to have a lot of respect from them, through applause and criticism."

It seems as if the Xhaka saga is far from over and it could define the Arsenal's season as well as under pressure Emery's future.
