Granit Xhaka Arsenal

Arsenal won their fourth match of the Premier League beating Cardiff City 3-2 away from home and with that Unai Emery has seemed to finally settled the Gunners’ ship after some initial hiccups.

The Gunners lost their opening two games against Manchester City and Chelsea after which a number of fans had started voicing concerns over the appointment of Unai Emery.

But the wins against West Ham and now Cardiff have surely calmed the nerves amongst the fans. Though for the players this could just be the start of a new trouble.

Arsenal scored their opening goal through Shkodran Mustafi and the German International chose a very controversial celebration.

Immediately after Mustafi scored the goal he folded his hands to form wings which clearly indicated to that controversial Albanian Eagle celebration.

What is the Albanian Eagle celebration?

The Albanian Eagle celebration was brought to the limelight this summer when both Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri chose to do it during Switzerland’s games.

Xhaka who plays for Arsenal was part of the starting eleven during the Cardiff City game and he did that Albanian Eagle celebration to protest against Serbia given the midfielder has Albanian parents.

Why did Shkodran Mustafi do the Albanian Eagle celebration?

Shkodran Mustafi is a German International but like Granit Xhaka, he too has Albanian heritage having been born in Bad Hersfeld, Hesse, to an Albanian family.

This celebration though has sent shock waves across the Premier League and the FA will surely be looking at this incident seriously and there’s every possibility that Shkodran Mustafi could face a ban for his controversial celebration.
