Arsenal fans want Granit Xhaka out for training gaffe ahead of Bournemouth clash

Arsenal fans were left fuming at captain Granit Xhaka after footage of a huge gaffe in training emerged.

The Gunners host Bournemouth at the Emirates this afternoon.

Unai Emery’s side can climb to third with a win.

They will be led out by Xhaka, who was made captain earlier this week.

Footage has emerged, though, which suggests the Swiss midfielder does not lead the way in skills.

In the clip, the squad are training at London Colney.

The players have been split into teams of six-a-side for a mini tournament.

Xhaka is facing stars such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wearing white bibs.

He picks up the ball in the middle of the pitch, exchanging a pass with Konstantinos Mavropanos.

The midfielder’s pass in the opposite direction, though, does not go to plan.

Aubameyang reads it and gets to the ball first, curling in a stunning effort.

All Xhaka can do is walk away before continuing the exercise.

This footage was shared on the club’s official YouTube channel yesterday, where it has been viewed nearly 200,000 times.

And the Gunners faithful were furious at their captain.

“Even in training Xhaka gives the ball away,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “Xhaka looks absolutely horrid, even in training.”

The captain misplaced a pass in a six-a-side game, conceding a goal from it

While a third lost patience with the midfielder.

“Xhaka out,” they said.

And a fourth added: “Why is this joke our captain?”

But Emery has also been urged not to start Rob Holding or Hector Bellerin against the Cherries.
