Arsenal star Granit Xhaka was visibly frustrated after the late equalizer in last night’s 1-1 draw with Europa League opponents Slavia Prague.
With just seconds left to play Arsenal conceded a corner from which Thomas Holes leaped tohead beyond Bernd Leno to score the all-important away goal.
The result means that a 0-0 draw next week in Czech Republic, will be enough to dump Mikel Arteta’s side out of European competition.
As the players went off the Emirates pitch, Xhaka who was furious was overheard yelling at his teammates for once again, playing themselves into trouble at the back, reports the Mirror.
This is not the first time the Gunners have fallen foul to overplaying it in their own half and Xhaka has clearly had enough, shouting: “Just clear the f****** ball away man.”
Speaking after the hurting draw, Arteta seemed to hint that he agreed with Xhaka, claiming his players kept the ball in areas they didn’t need to.
“We missed some big, big chances, I must say, but then we played two or three balls in certain areas we should not do,” the Arsenal boss said.
“We put ourselves on the back foot, we concede the corner and from there, they put a lot of bodies in there and anything can happen.”
