Granit Xhaka reacts after Arsenal fans sang his name during 3-0 win over Brentford
Granit Xhaka expressed gratitude to the team's fans for making Sunday's 3-0 victory over Brentford a "very special day," as they sang his name throughout the game.
The Gunners' victories in the Premier League helped them reclaim first place in the standings, and goals from William Saliba, Gabriel Jesus, and Fabio Vieira at the Gtech Community Stadium made that possible.
The Swiss International set up Jesus’ strike with a delightful chip into the box.
Arsenal fans serenaded the Swiss midfielder throughout and after the game, chanting his name.
The 29-year-old took over Arsenal’s official Twitter account to thank the fans.
“Hey guys, Granit here. "Great win, great result, thanks for your support,” he said.
You’ve been amazing, but as well for myself to hear what happened today, to say my name, to sing the song for me.
It’s a very, very special day, and thank you again. See you soon. All the best, guys. "
