Bellerin begs Arsenal fans after Xhaka burst out

The Spanish right-back has taken to social media following his skipper's clash with Gunners supporters in their game against Crystal Palace

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has posted a message of support for team-mate Granit Xhaka after the captain told fans to 'f*ck off' during the Gunners’ 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at the Emirates.

The midfielder then cupped his ear to the crowd and swore at them as he reached the sidelines, before ripping his shirt off and dropping it as he went straight down the tunnel, further inciting the crowd.

Right-back Bellerin has since posted a message of support for his team-mate on social media that reads: “We are all humans, we all have emotions, and sometimes it's not easy dealing with them. It's time to lift each other up, not to push each other away. We only win when we are together.”

It remains to be seen if Emery will strip Xhaka of the captaincy following the incident, but if he does, Bellerin will be among the names to replace him.

The Spaniard is one of Emery’s ‘five captains’, alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil, although Xhaka was chosen as the main captain of the five.

Ozil is in the process of being frozen out by Emery, having played just twice this season, which leaves Bellerin, Aubameyang and Lacazette as the leading contenders to take the armband.
