Xhaka, Holding And Cedric’s Heated Debate
London – Arsenal
Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka was left furious with his defence after Thursday night’s draw with Slavia Prague.
The Gunners thought they were heading for a quarter-final first-leg win over Slavia Prague at the Emirates Stadium after Nicolas Pepe scored as late as the 86th minute.
But Mikel Arteta‘s men blew it in stoppage time when Tomas Holes scored three minutes into added time to secure a draw for the Czech side and a potentially pivotal away goal.
The late goal is another bitter blow for the Gunners after the disastrous showing in the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League on the weekend.Arsenal Vs Slavia Prague – Match In Pictures
And that is, perhaps, why tensions were so high, particularly in the case of midfielder Xhaka, who lost his cool after seeing Slavia find their equaliser.
As pointed out by Goal’s Charles Watts, Xhaka was furious with his teammates after the full-time whistle, screaming “Just clear the f*****g ball away man.”
