Granit Xhaka does not have a future at Arsenal Football Club.

That’s according to former Gunners Perry Groves.

Xhaka’s last appearance was against Crystal Palace on October 27

The ex-winger has told talkSPORT there’s no way back for the Swiss international after his clash with the fans nearly a fortnight ago.

Xhaka has since been stripped off the Arsenal captaincy and Groves who made over 150 top flight appearances for the Gunners is adamant Xhaka’s stint in north London is ‘over’.

He said: “I think his time at Arsenal is over. I believe they’ll come to an agreement [in January].

“On a personal level and a human level he’s in a really bad way. It’s really hurt him.

“I was booed by Arsenal fans and it’s like being disowned by your family. But his reaction was wrong. He should have just apologised, and said I reacted in the wrong way.

“If you say ‘but’, it weakens the apology. He needs to move in January, and find pastures new.”

There looks to be no way back for Xhaka, who secured the captaincy courtesy of a player vote. Now striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been confirmed as his replacement.

Auba chalked up his 50th goal in Arsenal colours in just 78 games over the weekend.
