According to reports, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has told fans to ‘shut up’ after he was confronted while driving home from Friday night’s defeat by Manchester United.
Xhaka started and played the full 90 minutes as the Gunners were beaten 3-1, finding themselves dumped out the FA Cup in the fourth round.
And as he drove home from the Emirates after the match, the midfielder was involved in an ‘angry confrontation’ with Arsenal fans, The Sun report.
Supporters are alleged to have vented their anger at Xhaka, who eventually told them to ‘shut up’ before winding up the window of his car.
The Switzerland international was not only the subject of criticism, however, with some fans reportedly shouting ‘we love you’ to him.
Xhaka remains an enigma to many Arsenal supporters, as he has failed to live up to the hype since his 2016 transfer from Borussia Monchengladbach.
Rated as one of the best defensive midfielders in the European game before joining Arsenal, Xhaka has struggled to show his quality in the Premier League on a consistent basis.
He was distinctly average in the defeat by Manchester United to continue a season in which he has had few eye-catching performances.
Alexis Sanchez, the former Arsenal forward, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial scored on Friday night as Manchester United booked their place in the FA Cup fifth round.
The Gunners put pressure on when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made it 2-1 just before the end of the first half, but Martial’s 82nd minute strike ended their chances of a comeback.
United have now won eight matches in a row since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed the club’s manager on an interim basis.
