(VIDEO) Granit Xhaka reacts to Oleksandr Zinchenko’s Arsenal chant amid fans joke



Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has spoken of his admiration for Oleksandr Zinchenko’s chant during a recent interview.

Zinchenko arrived at the Emirates Stadium during the summer transfer window, joining from Manchester City for a fee in the region of £35 million. The Ukrainian international has hit the ground running since, usurping Kieran Tierney in Mikel Arteta’s starting XI and establishing himself as one of the best fullbacks in the Premier League in the process.

That kind of form has helped the north Londoners reach the top of the league table, currently sitting two points clear of second-placed City, who have also played one extra match this term. Now, Xhaka has spoken about the chant that the Gunners faithful sing for Zinchenko, admitting that it makes him happy to see a new arrival welcomed by the fans.

“It’s not my fault that the fans are blind and they are signing his song”, the Swiss captain joked when speaking to Footballers’ Lives, via Reddit about his teammates’ song.


“When a new player comes in and gets this warm welcome, it makes you feel very confident (that) you can put in everything for this club. It’s so important for us outside and on the pitch.

“Of course, a player like me, I had a song but we forgot that after what happened (falling out with the fans). Every song gives you a little bit more (of a) special feeling and I’m so happy for him.”
