Granit Xhaka Frustrates Arsenal Fans Again With His Return Against Frankfurt
By Mike Parrott
Granit Xhaka annoyed the Arsenal fans again after his return to the team last night in the loss against Frankfurt. The Swiss was seen smiling with the Frankfurt players at Full-Time.
Arsenal slumped to another loss last night in the UEFA Europa League, against Eintracht Frankfurt, losing 2-1.
With the game being the last for Unai Emery at Arsenal, most fans are probably hoping it's the last as well for Granit Xhaka.
The Swiss Midfielder had an unconvincing 90 minutes against Frankfurt after missing the last six games in all competitions for the North-London side.
Xhaka had missed the games due to him swearing and shouting at the Arsenal fans which led to him being stripped of the Captaincy.

The Arsenal captain was jeered by his own fans as he was substituted, before reportedly swearing at the crowd and rejecting a handshake from Unai Emery! :flushed:

However, it was what Xhaka did at the end of the game that riled up the Arsenal faithful.
The former Captain was seen laughing and smiling moments after Full-Time with a few Frankfurt players, causing typical reactions from outraged Arsenal fans on Twitter.

Arsenal, who haven't won a game since beating Vitoria Guimaraes on October 24, face Norwich City at Carrow Road this Sunday.
Arsenal will be under new Management for their next game against Norwich and we'll have to see if Xhaka will still be getting played under Interim Manager, Freddie Ljungberg.
