Granit Xhaka slams player who has an Arsenal tattoo for lack of ‘respect’ during clash

Switzerland’s 0-0 draw with Denmark last night sparked some unusual scenes, as former Arsenal star Granit Xhaka clashed with an opposition player.

Xhaka made himself a hero at the Emirates prior to his exit last summer, and is now thriving for Bayer Leverkusen at the top of the Bundesliga.

However, this does not mean he has left his aggressive past behind, as he was involved in yet another altercation on the pitch, as a player who leaves everything out there when involved in blood and thunder clashes.

This time, he clashed with Denmark and Sporting Club De Portugal midfielder Morten Hjulmand. The Dane prevented Xhaka from taking a free kick, which resulted in both players clashing.

Xhaka had been awarded a free-kick after going to ground, and Hjulmand gave him a kick when trying to hit the ball from underneath him.

The Switzerland captain was furious, and the pair were at each other’s throats.

Speaking after the game, Xhaka accused Hjulmand of a lack of respect during a friendly match.

“It was a clear free kick and I have the ball. He kicks me. It’s about respect,” Xhaka stated.
