Plenty of Arsenal Fans Are Furious with the Decision to Make Granit Xhaka Captain

Granit Xhaka has been named Arsenal‘s new permanent captain – and plenty of the club’s supporters are absolutely furious about the decision.

As we’ve told you previously, Swiss international Xhaka has been the focus of Gooners’ ire in the past, with the 27-year-old regularly making high-profile mistakes since joining the North London club in the summer of 2016.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been experimenting with a bold ‘five captains’ system but, according to the Sun, the Gunners’ squad has held a vote to establish who their new permanent on-field leader should be and Xhaka has come out on top.

Needless to say, plenty of Arsenal fans have had a pretty strong reaction to the news on social media:
