GRANIT XHAKA has been pictured leaving Arsenal training in a tiny £9,000 smart car, on the morning boss Unai Emery was given the boot.

Team-mate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, on the other hand, turned up in his flashy £270,000 Lamborghini.

And the duo, who have both skippered the Gunners this season, will have arrived at London Colney earlier this morning to the news of their manager's dismissal.

The writing was on the wall for Emery after Thursday night's dismal 2-1 defeat to Frankfurt in front of a sparsely populated Emirates Stadium.

The match saw Xhaka make his first-team return - a month on from his infamous "f*** off" rant at the Arsenal supporters in the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

But despite this, and a goal from new skipper Aubameyang, the Gunners fell to what turned out to be one defeat too many for Emery.

It was fiercely speculated what sort of reaction Granit Xhaka would get on his first-team return.

The reception turned out to be positive - with the fans that did bother to turn up at the Emirates cheering their former captain.

But he later enraged them, when he was captured on camera laughing and joking with opposition players David Abraham and Gelson Fernandes after the final whistle.

Xhaka played alongside Abraham at FC Basel - while Fernandes was a fellow regular in the Switzerland set-up until last year.

The divisive Swiss star, 27, has been linked with a loan move to either AC Milan or Inter - as well as Steve Bruce's Newcastle United.

But interim boss Freddie Ljungberg may elect to properly re-integrate Xhaka into the team.

Whether Xhaka can ever fix his fractured relationship with the Gunners fans, however, is doubtful.

And he may well have to drive his smart car to pastures new in January.

Ljungberg's first game in charge will be against strugglers Norwich City on Sunday.

And Aubameyang is expected to retain the armband for the Swede's debut in the Gunners hotseat.
