The wife who bore him two daughters was putting on a shinning red dress and a pair of shoes even though they were indoors.

In the third picture that was shared on Leonita’s page, the couple were holding their kids – Xhaka with the youngest in his arm while the second was standing with Leonita.

While Arsenal were winning 2-0 and cruising at Anfield, Xhaka was involved in an altercation with the Liverpool player.

Xhaka made a late tackle on Alexander-Arnold for the ball on the far touchline towards the end of the first-half.

The tackle had Alexander-Arnold squaring up against Xhaka before pushing him in the back at the touchline resulting in both players receiving yellow cards.

Liverpool took advantage of it immediately with Salah scoring Liverpool’s opener after the incident and Roberto Firmino levelling the match late on.
