Arsenal manager Unai Emery has spoken out on the Granit Xhaka situation amid reports of him potentially losing the captaincy.

According to the Times, it is not yet clear if Xhaka will definitely lose the armband, but he is expected to be handed a fine by the Gunners.
Emery has confirmed he’s spoken with the player and did not give much more away than that, with the Spanish tactician clearly keen to look out for his skipper in these difficult times.
It remains to be seen how sympathetic AFC fans will be, however, as Xhaka never really looked an ideal choice to be club captain in the first place and is now showing that.
