    IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…

    GRANIT XHAKA has explained his “f *** off” rant at Arsenal fans and said he reached “boiling point” after receiving sickening abuse in which people wished his daughter would get cancer.

    TheGunnerscaptain also said others had threatened to kill his wife and break his legs – and refused to apologize for his outburst.

    A statement released on Xhaka’s behalf through Arsenal’s Twitter account read: “After taking some time to reflect on what happened on Sunday afternoon, I would like to give you an explanation rather than just a quick response.

    “The scenes that took place around my substitution have moved me deeply.

    “I love this club and always give 100 per cent on and off the pitch.

    “My feeling of not being understood by fans, and repeated abusive comments at matches and in social media over the last weeks and months have hurt me deeply.

    “People have said things like‘ We will break your legs ’,‘ Kill your wife ’and‘ Wish that your daughter gets cancer ’.

    “In this situation, I let myself be carried away and reacted in a way that disrespected the group of fans that support our club, our team and myself with positive energy.

    “That has not been my intention and I’m sorry if that’s what people thought.

    “My wish is that we get back to a place of mutual respect, remembering why we fell in love with this game in the first place.

    “Let’s move forward positively together.”

    FABIAN SCHAR is shocked by Arsenal fans ‘treatment of “good guy” Granit Xhaka – and fears his Switzerland team-mate will find it hard to bounce back.

    Gunners skipper Xhaka, 27, was booed off by his own supporters when he was subbed during last Sunday’s draw with Crystal Palace.

    The Toon’s Swiss star, 27, said: “ I played with him for years and I know how he is as a person.

    “He’s doing everything for Arsenal, which is why he’s captain. He’s a very good guy and people aren’t seeing this.

    “I will see him in a couple of weeks with the international team and I’ll give him a hug. It’s very hard for a player when your own fans are against you.

    “Then you do something emotional that people don’t understand. It would be a very difficult situation for any player to have to deal with that.

    “To have that from your own fans is the worst thing that can happen to you. Nobody wants to see things like this. I’m happy that this has never happened to me. ”
