Xhaka allowed All or Nothing into his home because he has ‘nothing to hide’

Granit Xhaka allowed All or Nothing cameras into his home during the filming of the Arsenal documentary last season to show supporters that he has "nothing to hide".

The former Gunners skipper, who has won back the faith of fans by playing a key role under Mikel Arteta, appeared at home on the show alongside wife Leonita Lekaj and their two children.

The 29-year-old addressed the scenes while speaking to the media ahead of the release of the documentary, revealing that he was approached by producers over their attendance at his home.

He said: "They asked me if I was happy to do that, and to me it was fine because I have nothing to hide. I'm Granit here and the same at home."

Following his infamous outburst at supporters back in 2019, Xhaka was given a path to redemption by Arteta and once again feels like a leading figure in the dressing room.

Despite Martin Odegaard being named as club captain ahead of the current Premier League season, Xhaka doesn't think he needs the armband to be a leader.

He said: "You don't need it of course not."

Adding: "I don't believe a lot in the armband.

"At the moment I feel there is not only one but a lot of people are so good in this team you can speak with them and they can help you and it makes a big difference."

With Aaron Ramsdale adding of his team-mate: "He's integral to that group. When he was injured at the start of last year you could feel his presence in the changing room.

"You can feel his presence when he's playing.

"We've had a few arguments, me and him (Xhaka) on the pitch but the type of person that can be a great leader is the person that can forget about it when we get in the changing rooms."
