Granit Xhaka has reportedly been accused of racial abuse after an incident at Heathrow Airport.

The Telegraph alleges that the Swiss midfielder – who was sent off for Arsenal on Sunday after the latest of several moments of ill-discipline – ‘racially abused a member of staff in German’ after his friend was refused entry onto a flight to Germany because he was late for boarding.

The Independent have added more details, claiming that Xhaka was seeing off Leonard Lekaj,who plays for German sixth division team FC M√∂nchengladbach. They claim that he called a member of staff a “f***ing white bitch”.

A Met spokesperson said: “Police were called at 19:29hrs on Monday, 23 January following an allegation that a member of staff had been racially abused at Heathrow Airport, Terminal Five.

“The allegation was made by a third party.

“Officers attended and spoke with a man in his 20s. He was not arrested. He voluntarily attended a west London police station where he was interviewed under caution. Enquires continue.”
