Xhaka Tenders Apology For Dismissal Against Liverpool

(Last Updated On: 2022-01-14)


Arsenal midfielder, Granit Xhaka has apologised for his dismissal in Arsenal’s 0-0 draw at Liverpool last night.

The Swiss midfielder was sent off after 25 minutes of the Anfield clash after he produced a high challenge on Liverpool’s Diogo Jota as the last man. It was the 29-year-old’s second sending off of the season and his fifth in five-and-a-half years.


Xhaka’s Arsenal team-mates laboured to a 0-0 draw to keep their chances of reaching the Carabao Cup final alive.

“I want to apologise to everyone,” Xhaka wrote on Instagram after Thursday night’s match. “I am so proud of my team and the spirit they showed to keep a clean sheet tonight.”

Xhaka’s red card means he will now miss Sunday’s north London derby at Tottenham which is a crucial contest in the race for the top four, plus the vital north London leg of the League Cup semi-final against Liverpool next week.
