New Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka has been offered counseling by the club following his Sunday’s reaction against crystal Palace.
The Switzerland international was booed by home fans before he cursed them as he was being substituted.
Efforts by Arsenal coach Unai Emery to contact the player via the phone failed as he risks losing his captaincy role.
It has been confirmed that Unai Emery held a discussion with the midfielder at Colney training grounds.

Another separate meeting was held between the other players and the coach to determine the future of the captain.
Troubles for Xhaka began during Arsenal’s win against Aston Villa where he was booed by fans over his performance.
Close family sources to the player have also revealed he has not been in the right state of might since the incidence.
The ball is now on Emery who will make the final decision as to whether he will drop him or retain his captaincy at the club.
Gunners who are scheduled to battle it out with Liverpool at the Carabao cup will definitely miss the Switzerland’s services.
The same is likely to be expected over the weekend when they play Wolves in the English Premier League.
