Arsenal fans have reacted to comments from West Ham captain Mark Noble who called for Granit Xhaka to depart the Gunners.
The 32-year-old wrote in his column for the Evening Standard that he thought the Arsenal captain should try and arrange a move away from the Emirates.
He said: “In all honesty, the best solution might be to tell his agent, ‘Look, they don’t like me here, so maybe it’s best if I go and play somewhere else’.
“There would be a lot of takers for him.”
Fans on Twitter have been quick to react to Noble’s comments.
Captain Noble is a wise man.

I don’t even hate the guy and would never boo him but tbh he might not even get into West Hams midfield.

Expressing one’s opinion does not equate to harassment. Fans have the right to question performance or attitude on the pitch but to abuse his family and cursing them is not acceptable.

What do we think?
Noble has looked at the situation objectively in his column for the Evening Standard, and it’s telling that even a player of his level-headedness is calling for the Swiss captain to move on. But this is just the opinion of one player and Gunners fans shouldn’t use this column as bait for more Xhaka hate.
