Granit Xhaka incident not the first time Arsenal fans have turned against their own player

Granit Xhaka is reportedly refusing to apologise to Arsenal fans for his outburst after his substitution against Crystal Palace.

Xhaka’s substitution was met with cheers from the Emirates faithful on Sunday and was the booed for not leaving the pitch quick enough.

Remember this from 2008? Watch below as Gooners also booed Emmanuel Eboue as he was subbed off by Arsene Wenger in a game against Wigan…

The Ivorian had been having a poor game, and was actually dealt the humiliation of being a subbed sub as Wenger had earlier brought him on.

Arsenal fans are clearly an impatient bunch, as the Xhaka saga shows, and it’s brought back memories of the Eboue incident as this video clip has done the rounds today.
