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…
Not the first time 60,000 Arsenal fans have booed their own player. Throwback to when Eboue was at the end of Arsenal fans wrath.— Football HQ (@FootbaII_HQ) October 28, 2019

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.
