Fans Reckon Granit Xhaka Hurled An Expletive At Arsene Wenger Last Night
Arsenal may have ended their miserable run of form with a brilliant Europa League round of 32 win over AC Milan at the San Siro, but there was bit of an incident between Granit Xhaka and Arsene Wenger late in the game.
With Arsenal 2-0 up in stoppage time, the Gunners were enjoying some nice possession as they looked to see the game out.
But despite Xhaka having several players in space, he decided to try his luck from distance and promptly leathered the ball into the stands.
Wenger was infuriated with his midfielder's decision and when the cameras panned to him, he looked livid on the touchline and could be seen having a go at Xhaka.
The Swiss international was having none of it, and fans watching on BT Sport spotted that he appeared to say, "Oh come on, fuck off!" back to his gaffer.
Aaron Ramsey, who scored the second in the 2-0 away win, couldn't hold his laughter in.
Here's what Arsenal fans were tweeting about the exchange:
