Granit Xhaka’s vaccination status revealed as midfielder contracts covid

Xhaka contracts Covid on international duty

Arsenal have been plagued by Covid-19 in their camp across the opening three games of the season, with Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ben White and Willian all missing from the first-team squad due to the virus.

Their bad luck has continued into the international break too, with Granit Xhaka the latest player from the Gunners to test positive for the virus.

As per news outlet SRF:

“Xhaka was diagnosed with symptoms on the morning of the game and was immediately isolated in his room. A quick test turned out negative, but the subsequent PCR test carried out to be on the safe side showed a positive result in the evening.”

Xhaka’s vaccination status revealed

Amid the chaos, a spokesperson for the Swiss FA has come forward and revealed that Granit Xhaka has not, in fact, received the vaccination for Covid-19.

This comes just a week after Arsenal’s opening game against Brentford was thrown into chaos after positive Covid tests, to which Arteta said:

“We are trying to encourage them to get vaccinated because they are going to protect themselves, their families, obviously the environment around the club.

“But it is a really personal matter and we are trying to guide them and explain the reasons why it is better to do it. But at the end, it’s a personal decision.”

It seems to have been a personal decision that Xhaka has taken not to get the vaccine, with the Swiss, and Arsenal, now suffering the consequences.
