'Genuine guy with a massive heart': Some Arsenal fans react to what Xhaka has done now

Granit Xhaka starred for Arsenal as the Gunners beat Norwich City in the Premier League yesterday. However, fans are praising him for something that happened off the pitch.

After the jubilation of a fantastic victory, Arsenal fans learned that Tuesday’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers has been postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak at Wolves.

Safety of players is the priority and the right decision was taken by the authorities, but the revelation just a day and a half before kickoff has caused a few problems to fans travelling from far away.

One such supporter is Jack Robinson, who hails from St Louis, Missouri in America.


Granit Xhaka invites Arsenal fan to the Emirates

Robinson revealed on Twitter that he was on his way to the Emirates on Tuesday to watch Arsenal face Wolves.

The game coincided with his and his wife’s 10-year anniversary, and he wanted to celebrate the occasion by watching his favourite team play at home.

Jack the Gooner also revealed that he had been planning the trip for six months now. He was heartbroken to hear that the game was called off, but Xhaka, out of nowhere, made his day with an incredible gesture.

According to Football London, the Swiss international caught wind of Robinson’s tweet and immediately reached out to him on Instagram with a very special surprise.

Xhaka’s message read: “Hi Jack, I just got home from the game and I have seen your tweets that you and your wife were flying over from America for our game against Wolves and I could see you were upset about the game being cancelled as you had waited a long time to fly over to watch us.

“If you are still in London on the 1st, I’d like to invite you to the Arsenal vs Manchester City game as my guest to thank you for your dedication to Arsenal. Would that be good for you?”
