They had been baying for him as he slowly made his way off the pitch, with Xhaka's performances rarely meeting the high standards of previous Arsenal captains.

Nicholas: Xhaka has no Arsenal future

  Nicholas: Xhaka has no Arsenal future Granit Xhaka's "atrocious" behaviour means it would be a surprise if he played for Arsenal again, according to the club's former striker Charlie Nicholas. Arsenal will meet with captain Xhaka in the next few days to discuss his angry reaction to being substituted during Sunday's 2-2 home draw with Crystal Palace.Unai Emery said following the match that "now is the time to stay calm" and while Xhaka faces an anxious wait to learn his fate, Nicholas - who spent four and a half years with Arsenal - believes the Switzerland international should not play for the club again.

IAN WRIGHT blasted Granit Xhaka and urged the Arsenal captain to apologise to fans . Xhaka was jeered off the Emirates pitch when subbed by Unai Emery after 61 minutes of the draw with Crystal Palace. He then cupped his ears sarcastically to fans and swore, before ripping off his shirt and

But Wright insisted the behaviour was inexcusable, saying on Match of the Day 2: "He should apologise. That's the captain. He should have apologised already.

"[If he apologises] it's not a case of that's the end of it, but that's the guy they've chosen as the captain and that's not captain's behaviour.

"Arsenal fans have showed a lot of patience with him and the performances he's put in. He owes them a lot more than acting like that."

Wright questioned whether Xhaka's confidence might have gone because of flak from supporters and suggested he was reluctant to show for the ball.

"Players getting booed is not the best at the best of times," Wright said.

"I think they're frustrated with the fact he's not run off the pitch. I've seen him substituted before and he's bolted off the pitch.

"This time he's walked off. Now he's goading them.

"We're talking about fans that have watched him play, in the four years he's been there, a handful of good games and he's treating the fans like that."

Trouble could be brewing at Arsenal, with the 27-year-old Swiss set to have talks with head coach Unai Emery about his behaviour.

The Instagram account of striker Alexandre Lacazette also liked a post from a widely followed Arsenal supporter who said "enough is enough" for Emery and that Xhaka should never play for the club again.

Wright stressed that regardless of the fans' views and the way they might express them, Xhaka was out of order with his response during Sunday's game.

"He's the captain, so he's got the responsibility of being able to take that on board because he's been voted as the captain," Wright said.

"You can't go like that. The amount of stick that someone like Mesut Ozil's got, I can understand if Mesut Ozil came off and threw his shirt down, but [Xhaka] is the captain; the manager's got faith in him."
