Xhaka started his career with Basel and won the Swiss Super League in his first two seasons. He moved to the Bundesliga in 2012 and signed with the team Borussia Mönchengladbach, where he earned a reputation as a technically skilled player and natural leader while also drawing criticism for his temper.

He became the team’s captain at the age of 22 and guided Borussia Mönchengladbach to a second straight season of UEFA Champions League qualification. He signed a high-profile transfer to Arsenal in May 2016 for about $36.61 million. He has been sent off the most times since he joined the club.

However, he has proven himself to be a capable team leader to the point that he was given the armband. In recent years, Granit Xhaka’s relationship with certain Arsenal supporters has been strained. It later resulted in the star storming off at the Emirates in 2019 and giving up his position as club captain.
